Festival of Lights

When Tachis’ brother started to tease him by saying his holiday-decorated home looked like a tree lot, he decided to make it one. “He wanted to tease me, so I said, here you go, and I put his name on it,” Tachis said. The mock tree lot, appropriately named “Tommy’s Trees,” isn’t the only thing worth seeing at this festive residence. Hoards of white lights, a candy cane-arched walkway, reindeer and a Santa moving in and out of the chimney make Tachis’ home a major photo op.
