So, as a quick follow-up on my last post, here are some additional Christmas light. I got two of these in emails, one that I've seen myself (but in the spirit of full disclosure, a friend took the pictures because I wasn't there at night), and finally, my sad light display.
Email text - “Good news is that I truly outdid myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after two days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories. But two things made me take it down.
First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.
Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn’t realize that it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of the many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn’t take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.”
This is from another email. I have always wanted to do something like this. With yellow motion lights, and Santa writing his name in the snow.
Because I'm sick like that.
This one is actually in suburban Chicago. Oh, I know there are bigger, tackier displays out there, but I love the penguin choir up on the roof. And you think the neighbor who has their place up for sale REALLY appreciates the heck out of it.
This is my sad little lights. But don't worry, my little chick-a-dee, my tree and fireplace are a lot more well done.
And you'll see those later.
