Sources close to the couple tell us ... G&T placed an order with A-1 Christmas Trees and Lights in L.A. on Tuesday -- purchasing two twelve-foot Christmas trees ... and a whole mess of lights for their house ... totaling approximately $7,500.

Big surprise -- we're told the lights are red, white, and blue ... Patriots style. Clark Griswold would be proud.

Spending money is in a way helping out the economy. Rich people should spend more, keep business in business.

And the rich deserves to spend what they earned just like the rest of us. No need to bring up charity here.

Yes I misspelled some words, The point is this is too "look at us" for my taste. Yes spending does help the economy, but spending on helping others helps in more ways than just monetary.

What is with the fake snow? That is fake snow won't it just blow away or is it glued on. Well apparantly they like decorating and there are many people not famous people who really get into the holiday decorating. So be it I say. no reason why they cannot do so as well. I believe HGTV shows people all over who go overboard on Holiday decs. They are just one of them so let them do it if they like. to each his own I always say.

Its so annoying that whenever a celeb spends money on something you have people come on here and say "what a waste, there are starving children in (insert under privlidged country) that can use that money."

1st of all, i'm sure these 2 donate more money each year and do more charity work each year than any of you do in your entire lifetime.

2nd, who are you to tell these people what they should spend their money on. They earned the money. Just because theyre using some for Christmas lights doesnt mean they are bad people. Many people put up Christmas lights, they are no different. The only difference is they have the money to where a $7,500 bill doesnt put a dent in their wallet while most of us couldnt afford to drop that much on lights.

Those saying they should take that money and give it to the poor, i'm curious as to how much money you donated to the poor over the last year, or heck how about your lifetime. And how much time you've donated to helping the less fortunate. Because i'm sure its not even close to what Brady has done himself and Gisele herself.

Gisele donated $1.5 million herself to the Red Cross to help Haiti after their tragedy. Brady works with United Way, the Boys & Girls Club and has donated lots of money including laptops for kids.

So quit saying they should spend the money on starving children because they have enough money to spend $7,500 on lights AND donate money to starving children.

Are people really going to be critical of a guy for putting up Christmas lights? He can do whatever the hell he wants with his money. I'm sure they give to charity, but just because you're rich doesn't mean you can't spend money enjoying yourself.

The only part of the story I find odd is that Tom Brady has a mansion in L.A. Maybe he was originally from California?

Is this the 20,000 square foot mansion with the elevator, lagoon pool and six car garage that the Sierra Club went after them for but she still shows up for events and a UN Goodwill Environmental Ambassador and tell us to turn off our lights and live by candlelight? Nice
