Multiple Virtual Santas On Same Street


Recommended Posts

I wasn't really sure where to post this so Neighbor Relations is the lucky forum. I'm mostly venting but also trying to decide how to handle questions that neighbors have about the Virtual Santa. First our next door neighbor wants details on how it works because he wants to add one to his display. This is the same neighbor who, year after year asks what new items we will put up because (in his exact words) he wants to "keep up with the Jones'". Having a neighbor directly beside me copying any hard work I do is frustrating but I think I might lose it if there are two VS side by side. We actually came home tonight to a note on our door from another neighbor asking where she can get one. I feel a bit childish wanting our display items all to myself though so trying to figure out how I'm going to respond. VS is one of those unique items that would just be weird seeing multiple within 300 yards of each other.

Maybe you can have a little fun and tell them that is really Santa. He hangs out at your house for a liltle break or when Mrs. Claus is looking for him to take care of that "Honey Do" list. I agree that it would lose a little of its uniqueness if there were several on the same street. And it would confuse the little kids seeing Santa in everyone's window; maybe that's the answer, tell 'em there shouldn't be more than one in the same area at the same time.

Tell him that Santa can only be at one house at a time eating cookies and setting out presents. You don't want to give the little kids mix feelings.... that wouldn't be right !

 

Oh.....and by the way......I added VS to our display this year too !  ho ho ho

I can understand your frustration, but they may do it anyway. What if you could agree that only one would run at a time. Each house could be assigned certain nights or it would be really cool if you could have it so Santa was in each house for say 5 minutes at a time.  The kids would be saying “look he’s over there now!”

I think that it's awesome that you have a bunch of neighbors that are into Christmas decorating.

Try to keep it mentally as a cooperation, not a competition.

I like the idea of coordinating with your neighbors on the Virtual santa, perhaps a daily rotation where kids would try to find him every night.
