Outdoor Decorations, Advent Calendar December 5, 2011, Christmas Memories

     I don’t want to sound like the old Scrooge when it comes to outdoor Christmas decorations, but for some reason they never looked right on our house when I was growing up.  I have fond memories of everyone else’s outdoor Christmas decorations but not ours.  When the fad was to use smaller lights on one’s home, my parents still used the large multi-colored lights on the house.  I just was never pleased with the way the large lights looked.

     I also was tired of the old Santa Clause my father seemed to hang literally from its neck from the olive tree in our front yard.  I guess he had no idea where to put it but in that darn tree.  Why not set it on the roof near the chimney?  Maybe my dad thought he would have to buy more decorations….Who knows.  That old Santa is no longer with us, as I donated him years ago to the Salvation Army.

Bah, Humbug!
