As promised yesterday, here are the rest of the holiday lights images I took around town. Click on the thumbnails below to see them. I hope everyone who celebrated Christmas had a wonderful holiday.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday, just a happy Thursday, or whatever makes you merry. It’s funny — I hadn’t realized until I went to do this post that this is the same house on Summerview Dr. I posted for Christmas last year. They have a great house.
I had planned on burning off the rest of the Christmas lights photos I had taken, but there were more than I realized, so expect part two tomorrow. Click on the thumbnails below to see the first batch:
Happy holidays to everyone, whatever you may celebrate this time of year. And to celebrate the eve of that Christmas thang, here’s a penguin. Because yes.
He was actually part of a set of three that spelled out “JOY” in someone’s yard on Wildflower Dr., but I didn’t get a good shot of the group, so here’s the “Y” dude, instead. I thought he was holding french fries at first.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams spotted this excellent display of creativity in nearby Sublimity. Her description:
This is recycling at its finest ! I saw this display in Sublimity before Halloween. After that was over with, they added a few things and made it into a Thanksgiving display. Then they threw santa hats on the scarecrows and turned it into a Christmas display ! Clever clever !!!
I love it. Thanks, Terri, and thanks to the person or people responsible for the display.
A celebrity was spotted in Stayton the other day — Bumble the yeti from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special was standing outside a dental office on Washington St. He seemed to be in the middle of putting up some Christmas decorations, so I didn’t want to get in his way. He was kind enough to pose for a photo, though, which I thought was very generous of him.
This giant Christmas holiday lighted display sits in a yard on the street that runs next to the hospital. I’m honestly not sure what that street it called, because one end says it’s Pine St., and the other end says it’s Fir St. Maybe I’ll just call it Fine St. and be done with it.
That home happens to be where my favorite oak tree lives (’twas once my favorite two oak trees, but one was cut down a couple of years ago), and they’ve wrapped a bunch of lights around the tree (see below). Very pretty. The other lights in the photo below are random businesses a few blocks away.
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.
