    So funny! Did yo know there's a guy who lives in the Christmas Story house who sells all these things? What a fun business, huh? We'll be giving our new tacky lights a first go at French Creek in two weeks. http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Product/Pr-p_Product.CATENTRY_ID:2016585/c-10101/Nty-1/p-2016585/Ntx-mode+matchallpartial/N-10101/tf-Browse/s-10101/Ntk-AllTextSearchGroup?Ntt=fun+lights

    I used to work with a guy who had one of those lamps and he held an annual "leg lighting" Christmas party! It was hilarious <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Big Smile">

    I think we should have a tacky light contest at French Creek.

    First place should get a ham.

    I'd like to pick up some tacky lights, but whats the cheapest place to get a decent set of them? I don't even know where to start looking! I also don't want an ebay cheapo that will short out if it rains!! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_blackeye.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Black Eye">

    I've purchased my lights on E-bay and haven't had any problems with them. They have been new and are less expensive than sites like oogalights. http://www.oogalights.com/

    So funny!! I got mine in honor of my DH, as well. Mine thought the little pig chef was hoot. He'd surely love the steak and grill lights!!

    Sounds like a go! Two thumbs up on the tacky light contest!!!

    Kevin, got ours at jcwhitney.com. Found they had quite a collection, and prices were really quite reasonable.

    Love the "leg lights" but did you notice that they are NOT outdoor lights? The description states indoor only. Don't like to burst any bubbles, but would hate to see someone get hurt.
