Great neighbor's

Just wanted to share a great story.

This has been my best year yet. I do a static display with a lot of cut-outs but have experienced the traffic of a synced show. Its great. I have been fortunate enough this year to meet some of the people who came to see my display. Several from Japan, here on an exchange student program, day cares that brought the kids by in the day for pictures and my neighbors, who have knocked on my door asking if their kids can walk through so they can take pictures with all the characters.

Last year someone left chocolates with a card saying thank you for all the hard work I do in bringing joy to everyone. I was of course touched and even teared up. Then this year I got a card from a church 2 streets away, signed by many children and adults.

Just so you all know I don't go to church.

Here is a pic of the card.

I couldn't agree with you more drkness.

My wife and I dress up as Santa and Mrs Claus and go out each night to hand out candy canes.  This year we had a young lady call us over near one of the cars and asked us if we would be so kind as to come to the vehicle to greet her elderly mother & father in the vehicle.  She indicated that they couldn't have them get out of the vehicle because of health issues. My wife and I agreed, so we went to the passenger window. In the passenger seat was her mother who became very excited when I spoke to her, as she went on to explained to us that she was 89 years of age and has never in her life been near a Santa Claus. Not knowing how she would respond, I asked if she wanted to get her picture taken with Santa and Mrs Claus. With wet eyes she said yes and proceeded to open the car door to get out. With our assistance we got her out and she had her picture taken with us. After that, she wanted a second picture to be taken only with Santa because she wanted to feel what Santa's beard felt like.  After getting her picture taken with her hand on my beard, she turned to my wife and said "I might be old, but my pilot light is still on in this old furnace".

It seems each time I contemplate downsizing, I have someone catch me and tell me how much they enjoy seeing my lights.  People don't like to drive down people's driveways and I have a long one but it's all visible from the road across the cow pasture.  With one new building already built and another one going up this year, that's 2 more to decorate next year.  And those building will also have their own outlets for power to be more readily available!

Now if I could get my wife interested in helping me decorate too...
