When i used to live in Singapore we had a fairly big, three story apartment and Christmas lights were cheap, really cheap, SIN$5.95 per hundred.

We had 3,500 lights strung up in one half of one floor. I don't have any photos at hand but I reckon our window would have looked like a lighthouse.

We used to put them up on my parent's house but since the trees grew too tall and we're a long way back from the road there wasn't much point so we've stopped. I think there's still some on the second story roof from around 1996.

Mind you, my folks are moving next year to a house with street frontage and far more foot and road traffic past the house so I can guarantee that the remaining 2000 or so lights that still work will be again draining the town's power supply.

Heck, I believe that there is probably a thread on every possible subject known to humankind (and then some) here on MR! :D ;)

Hmm Christmas lights, probably not a great idea (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4537556.stm)

...Fire investigators said it was possible the fire could have been caused by the large number of Christmas lights inside and outside of the house...

That's awesome. It reminds me of a gingerbread house. :)
