Christmas Decorating: A Photo-play

It's that time again. Time to make the home into a 911 call waiting to happen. Tangled trip-hazard wires underfoot, and lots and lots of kindling for electrical fires! Time to decorate the home for Christmas.

Frank and Kelli come by to help...

..it goes a little rough at first.

(The next four lines rhyme...sweet)

Start with the small stuff...brown jelly belly poopin' Christmas animals...

A Sam the Snowman that looks like me...

Coca-Cola bobble-head Santa...

And a decoration I've had since I was 3.
I told you it was sweet.

The bull-head gets a Christmas face-lift...

Jeff hangs the final touch...

...on Charlie Brown's tree.

Kelli enlists Mike's help...

...oooooooooooooooo scary!

...Awwwwww, it's NOT scary. It's the comforting gaze of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. We DO have to keep religion in the holiday, you know! It's not a secular holiday!
The glory of a plastic tree!

All aglow!

With a smiling "Jack" at the top.

A disinterested Mike ignoring the transformed Route 66 tapestry behind him. If you look closely you can see a wrapped present in "Bob the Big Boy's" hand, reindeer antler and red nose on "The Big Blue Wale" and a Santa hat on the "Arizona Dino".

Oooooooooo electrified!

A choir of elves above Christmas palm trees.

By day a tangle of hanging wires and bric-a-brac.

By night a colorful testament to the Pagan's Winter Solstice Yule!


Mike with visions of sugar plums and Guinness dancing in his head after a long night of decorating.
And to all a good night!
