Every year, the residents of West 37th Street, in Austin, Texas, decorate their houses with lights. But it's not your typical Christmas scene. There's a Barbie doll tied to a lit-up train track and a volcano that spews smoke out of a glowing mound of lights. And then there's the house at 310 West 37th Street. On weekend nights in December, up to 10,000 people visit to see the spectacle. Alex Cohen takes us there.
