Generation after generation, the people of Connecticut have maintained the habit of setting up light displays around this time of the year and 2017 will not be an exception. Our Connecticut Ground Transportation Service has identified some of the most alluring light displays you can enjoy with family and friends in the Constitution State.
That House in Milford
That House in Milford has a very interesting history. It started as a normal house when the couple that lived in it got married in the December of 2001. That Christmas they set up about 1,500 Christmas Lights on the roof of their new home and year after year they just kept adding onto it those 1,500 and the house became popular for it, eventually being referred to as ‘That House’, it became known and the best decorated house in Milford. The Donnell’s started putting up the lights in October and this year, it is expected that there will be over 30, 000 Christmas lights on their roof. The couple has been using the popularity of their house to raise funds for the Connecticut Food Bank through visitors’ donations, which is a cause we would all want to involve ourselves in this season of giving, right?
