RE: The Christmas House on Adobestone in Marinwood

I lived at 265 Adobestone Court as a youngster in 1956-65. Dooley and Dorothy moved in next door about 1 year after we did. My brother and I loved their Christmas House and we watched it grow over the years as we grew up. We moved to Tiburon in 1965. In the early 90s, I stopped by to see the Stithams after not seeing them for almost 30 years. Dooley opened the front door, took a long look at me and exclaimed "Dorothy! Little Judy Wallace is here!" The Stithams had not changed a bit even after all those years. They were as welcoming and fun as ever!

Wow, this is a blast from the past! I went to school with Scott Stitham in 5th grade at Mary E. Silveira. Nice kid. Back then my family lived in Marinwood on Roundtree (?) Blvd. My parents would take us by the Stitham's house each year in the early ('73 or '74) to mid 70s as part of our "Christmas lights tour". Interestingly, I didn't realize that it was Scott's house until years later. For some reason, seeing it at night just didn't register. But it was a pretty impressive light display, that's for sure.

Cool! Funny thing, I actually know the guy who did that video--my stepdad worked with him.

In 1992, I lived right next door to the Christmas house, with my bedroom actually facing it. Pretty exciting stuff for a 19 year-old with memories of visiting that magical place during childhood. Better yet, the couple who lived there invited all the neighbors over for a Christmas party, so I was thrilled to get to see inside their house (not sure if they generally opened that to the public), which was also festively decorated, including an indoor waterfall! I lived there for a year and they seemed like really kind people, though I didn't get to know them well.

I'm not sure when it started or ended, but I think it must have gone on for at least a decade, if not longer, definitely during the 80s and 90s.

Does anyone remember the Stitham's "Christmas House" on Adobestone? I've got a video clip to add to the Spotlight section but I don't know much about when they started to doing it and when they stopped. Does anyone have any memories of this house?
