FAIR LAWN, N.J. — The DeSomma family of Fair Lawn is at it again.

Christmas on Vanore has been up and running for more than two weeks, and XXX

"It started out just for us," said DeSomma, who for six years has been transforming his Vanore Drive home into a seasonal spectacle for community members to enjoy.

"Then we started seeing all the people come out and really loving it, so it just got bigger and bigger and basically became for everyone.

"We can't not do it anymore."

Every year, he tries to add something new.

Needless to say, traffic jams aren't unusual on Vanore Drive this time of year. The family has come home to people dancing on their lawn, Marc's wife, Paula Desomma, told Daily Voice.

The couple's daughter, Mia, distributes candy canes to as many visitors as she can, and the house is always the final stop for Fair Lawn's Santa Boone project, which raises money and gifts for a Fair Lawn family in need.

Sometimes, getting everything set up seems like a lot of work for Marc.

"But then," he said, "you think about all those times when everyone is here, and it becomes fun again."
