Harvey Guilbault’s house is a sparkling beacon on a busy road. He doesn’t get very many visitors checking out his display because of his location on the parkway, which has no sidewalk.

When I was a kid, my parents decorated our house,” he said. “It gets you in the spirit.” Guilbault was the only homeowner the Globe spoke with for this compilation who didn’t grouse about his electric bill. He uses all LED lights, and said it hardly makes a dent in the bill.
