Some Treasure Valley residents are working together to get in the holiday spirit. Neighbors in the Rhine River Court culdesac in Nampa all help each other decorate their houses.

One of the residents says the neighbors usually have a group work day to string lights from house to house. The neighbors even get on each other's roofs to put up decorations. He says this year, one of his fellow neighbors had to hook up some more outlets because he was low on power trying to run all of his lights. 

He says usually a competition is held, but that's not what it's all about.

"I think the subdivision usually has one but that's not, ya know, why we do it but, that's just a bonus. But, we just, like I said, we all try to get together and show some Christmas spirit and hopefully helps out those folks with all the bad stuff going on. Maybe it's a little reprieve to come look at Christmas lights," says Scott Stopak, Nampa resident. 

Stopak says they usually get quite a few people coming through to look at the lights on the weekends and they even get Christmas light bus tours through their subdivision.

The lights typically stay on until 11 p.m. every night and they will stay up through New Years.
