Glenn Zior's neighbors in Mount Airy have never been bothered by lights flashing four hours every night and traffic filling the narrow street as car after car stops to watch and maybe leave a donation, he said. In fact, many have asked him when his annual display will be ready. The lights will be on this weekend, he has promised. "Neighbors love the display, and a few have complained that it hasn't gone up yet," he said. Days before he tackled the annual remaking of his front yard into a holiday wonderland, Zior estimated he was short about 10,000 lights.
