Want Christmas Spirit? Borrow It From This Lady

A woman in New Deal, Texas, has filled her home with over 200 Christmas trees and countless trinkets such as Coca-Coca polar bears and Santa figurines.

Sheryl Rieken, who lives with her family just Northeast of Lubbock in a 2,700 square foot home, has a Christmas tree decorated for every theme you can imagine.

This includes individual trees filled with My Little Ponies, Treasure Trolls, New Deal Lions HS football memorabilia, Looney Tunes, Elvis, Scooby-Doo, M&M’s and Spongebob Squarepants knick knacks. Riekan made many of the ornaments on one particular tree out of tongue depressors, clothespins, paintbrushes and pictures of her grandchildren.

Her home is 25 years in the making and $1,500 dollars a year to her electric bill. “I think both of my kids think I’m a hoarder, but I’m a neat hoarder. We actually threw the transformer out on the pole and the electric company had to come out and fix it.”
