Vegas seems to do everything bigger. Like Texas, but with more questionable funding sources. I was very impressed by the Christmas display at the Wynn, the Bellagio and the Palazzo (the Wynn is pictured above). Even off the strip, electricity costs are no object.
Ethel M’s botanical cactus garden is decorated in all its gaudy finery (powered by solar, I should note). I feel sorry for the poor bastard who has to take the lights down (ow! Ow! OW!)
If you are in Vegas over the holidays take a moment and check it out…it’s enough to grow the heart of even the biggest Grinch! Although winning in the casinos doesn’t hurt either.
