The Christmas holidays bring out the super-fan in many of us. Sports teams probably provide the most evidence, churning out league-approved stocking caps, ornaments, yard décor, and the like every winter.
But sports fans aren’t the only ones expressing their devotion to modern cultural phenomena during the special season. Exhibit A: a home that presents a display that replicates a set from the first season of the Netflix hit Stranger Things.
Fans might remember the Christmas lights at the Byers’ home played a crucial role in the climax of that season’s story. Now, residents of the home on 37th Street—where neighbors have created a short strip of spectacular light shows every Christmas seaons for decades—have recreated that living room in their front yard.
What the display might lack in “wow” factor, it makes up with authenticity. The vintage couch, wood paneling candles, and a wall that says “Merry Christmas” in lettering similar to those in the Byers’ humble home, where lights and letters are central to a crucial scene, are all spot on.
