It is Christmas tide, and we nestle close to one another in the light of glowing candles, crackling fires, discreetly twinkling Christmas lights...... and the power plant-draining blare of tacky light displays.
Creative expression comes in all shapes, forms, and wattage levels.
The people who created these home light displays have been adding to them for 30 or 40 years.
Santa Claus and the Holy Family coexist peacefully in the jumble.
More is more.
Thousands and thousands of people flock to marvel at these blockbuster displays. Tiny neighborhood streets are jammed with cars, crowds of people, limousines, and buses. Maybe you are thanking your lucky stars that this isn't going on next door to you. I am. But I am also marveling at the time investment, the effort, the ingenuity, and in the case of this fifty foot tall tree, the beauty, of tacky light displays.
