There’s a neighborhood quite close to mine, populated by mock-Victorian homes, which are decorated quite austerely this time of year with white lights.
I avoid that place like the plague.
I head for the joy. Yeah, THIS is the kind of thing I’m looking for!
For about 50 years, this neighborhood has been decked out with custom-made, stand-up displays depicting classic characters & the latest movies, and has been raising lots of money for charity in the process.
I’m not showing my favorites–just the ones that are somehow snail mail-related. These last 3 photos attempt to duplicate the “greeting cards” that can be seen as the boats exit the It’s a Small World Holiday ride at Disneyland. I’ve always wanted Disneyland to actually sell these cards–but it’s quite difficult to find nice It’s a Small World souvenirs of any kind.
One more Holiday Special to come! Unless I post more than one. Or just forget entirely.
