The story behind Christmasville
Welcome to Christmasville in Farmingville. We’re the Buckley’s (Dan, Debi, Chris, Steph & Danielle). We’ve been decorating for nine years and going on ten. It all started back at apartment in Queens with lights around the living room and the kitchen windows and the the railing on the stoop. Seven years ago we moved into Farmingville and new house means new decor. Every year, we buy new decorations and thanks to our designated shed, we have more room for decorations. We usually start decorating by November 1st, everyday of the week and weekend to have it all ready for the Thanksgiving weekend. This is our first year sponsoring a charity : Angela’s House. Our son Chris is responsible for all of this. He has been decorating for all of the ten years since he was seven. He comes up with all of the designs and planning for all the decorations. He says “Seeing a kid’s face light up from excitement and joy is a feeling like no other.” Having his little sister as his helper, she gives him the thumbs up for a new decoration. We have the lights up from the Saturday after Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) till the end of New Years Week (Jan. 5). The lights are on between 5-11pm, and Chris will be outside collecting donations during the first week of December. Our favorite decoration of 2007 is the gingerbread house drive-thru. It took all of October and some of November to complete it. Our neighbors think we’re insane but love that we do all this. Chris is inspired by all the Christmas decorators out there, we know what its like to go Christmas house hunting and we love to look at everybody’s ideas and setup of all the decorations. Chris takes some of their ideas and makes them his own. He gets so much enjoyment out of it and his goal is “making everyone happy”. We hope you’ll come and drive by and take a look and drop off a donation in our donation box. Happy Holidays!
