Spring Lake Man Puts On High-Tech Christmas Light Display

I can't be bothered to put up Christmas lights most years. In fact, I'm lucky if I have the time to get my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree up. But, that doesn't mean that I don't like Christmas lights, and I just discovered a display that I just may have to check out.

A Spring Lake man's annual high-tech Christmas lights display is up and running again. A few months ago, a team of 150 volunteers helped Brad Boyink start stringing close to 300,000 LED lights around his house, plus 13 other houses in his cul-de-sac.

Secret Santa Pays Off Lay-Away Bills In Grand Rapids

You always hear people say that Christmas is far more about giving than receiving, and a local man has taken that to heart and is helping complete strangers.

The man contacted our friends over at WZZM 13, and told them that, while he wanted to remain anonymous, he thought that it was important to share a positive story with the community. He told them that Wednesday morning, he went into the K-Mart on Plainfield Ave. and paid off several lay-away bills.

All I Want for Christmas are Scrunchies in Every Color of the Rainbow– Christmas Lists from the 90s

Hearing that the iPad is the number one things kids want for Christmas this year made me feel... well, really old. It made me nostalgic for the 90s, a seemingly simpler time, when some neon scrunchies and a My Little Pony would have blown my mind on Christmas morning.

My older brother had an unfortunate basement flooding issue recently. One good thing that came out of it is that it forced him to go through boxes of items he'd just been moving around for years.
