Hewitt Holiday House
by Karin L. Nauber
To say that Trinity Gruenberg of Hewitt enjoys decorating for the holidays might be a bit of an understatement. It would be more accurate to say she is obsessed.
This obsession has been going on for as long as Gruenberg can remember. She grew up in Ventura, California and it all started with Candy Cane Lane.
"Every Christmas my mom—Treva Feezor—would take me to Teloma Drive which was magically transformed into Candy Cane Lane," she said.
It was a block of homeowners that banned together to deck the halls for Christmas.
"Every house [on the block] was brightly lit. It was a slow drive up and down both sides of the street to stare at every festive house. I was crushed when it closed in 1993 due to vandalism problems," said Gruenberg with a sad sigh.
She has always been one of those people that likes to drive around and look at people's lights.
"I would spend hours on YouTube watching videos of people's decorations, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects and light shows," she said.
Gruenberg was a big fan of one man in California that had RGB lights and singing faces.
There was another that had a huge guitar and piano that were animated within his show. . . . .
