Happy day after Christmas, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, and whatever else happens today. Here are the rest of the holiday decoration photos I took a few nights ago around town (here’s part 1). Click on the thumbnails below to see them larger, and I hope everyone has had a great holiday.
Happy holidays, everyone! Guest photographer Terry Lindemann of Mr. Fixet in Aumsville sent us these fun images of his Christmas decorations, including his train in the Sublimity holiday parade, his 1955 Willy at the Santa Cruise-in car show at the Stayton Fire Department, and his house decorations.

Now that Christmas is over, Santa Claus is taking a break. He and his old pal Frosty the Snowman decided to spend some time getting caught up on everything that’s happened since last winter. Santa spent all his time organizing this year’s sleigh ride, moderating elf disputes, and making his naughty and nice lists. Frosty on the other hand spent most of the summer in Antarctica, because he’d never been there before. He made a lot of good penguin friends, though one thought it was funny to steal Frosty’s magic hat and put it on random lumps of snow to see if they would dance around like Frosty. They did, though Frosty never saw them. Without his hat, he couldn’t do or see a thing. Darned penguin.
All in all, it was a good visit, though by the end of it things became a bit strained. Santa was really tired and wasn’t his usual jolly old self. Frosty said he wasn’t sure he’d want to visit again next year, but Santa wasn’t worried. He knew Frosty would be back again someday. Even if he wasn’t, Santa has ways of tracking people down. It’s what he does.
Why, yes, I am posting a photo of Christmas lights after Christmas is over. That would be because I have one singular non-Christmas photo I can post, so I’m taking advantage of the near-Christmas vibe for as long as I can. This house happens to be my own.
I hope everyone who celebrated Christmas had a great holiday, and that everyone in general had a great Tuesday.
Oh, look. Christmas lights. I haven’t posted those for the last several days or anything. I took this photo in my front yard, because there are lights in my front yard, and I have a camera. So I took a picture. And posted it here. Today. Well, technically, I wrote this a few days ago, but it’s getting posted today. Whenever today is. I’ve lost track.
