Featured on Yahoo!
The Tripp Family Christmas Lights is currently featured on Yahoo’s Home page in the Extreme Holiday Decorations editorial photo gallery. The gallery used a photo of the lights taken in 2007 which showed the house from a side view.
Quote Joey Tripp: “We discovered this by chance because of my phone. A little after 9pm my phone started buzzing like crazy because I was getting several email notifications. I was unaware of why I was getting so many emails but when I checked they were all coming from the website Flickr.com, the site we host our photos on. When I went to Flickr I saw several comments on one particular photo. I still didn’t know why that one photo was getting so much traffic. After several hours of searching I went to Yahoo.com and saw that an Extreme Holiday Decorations gallery was being featured on Yahoo!’s home page. I clicked the link and found the source of all the traffic.”
