nightmare on christmas street
I took Holly for a walk yesterday afternoon and was checking out some of the decorations in the 'hood. One neighbor gets my prize for "most confusing Christmas scenes" otherwise known as the "Huh?! Award."
She has three sections of decorations across her small front yard, and decorations stuck right on the front of the house. (I didn't even know that was permissible. Although it's certainly attractive.) One section of decorations was a ceramic house labeled "The Claus's" with a Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus standing next to it. I won't even tell you that Mr & Mrs. were taller than the house, and I spent several moments wondering how the hell they'd get through the front door.
In the middle was a big manager scene, complete with Three Wise Men and chipmunks climbing small pine covered light posts behind it. Off to either side of the manger were two sets of gawdawful wooden deer--knocked over, as if in a drunken stupor. Again, the deer were bigger than the manger people. On the other side of the manager scene was a grouping of Precious Moments ceramic angels around what looked to be a pine bough covered May Pole. I have no idea what that was all about. I'm thinking "Wiccan".
When we came home, Mr. G was just coming in from work. I said, "We were looking at the decorations." He said, "Let me guess which one caught your attention...." LOL! How could it NOT catch my attention?!
