REVERE — At first, I thought it was a migraine coming on.
There, on a hill overlooking Route 145 in Revere, was a seizure-inducing mass of flashing lights. Sometimes candy does this to me. But Halloween was just a couple of days earlier, and I’d barely gotten halfway through my kid’s goody-bag. I looked again. There was no mistaking it: The house on Hillside Avenue was getting its Christmas on. In the first week of November.
