Every year people talk about the best Christmas light display they have seen. They kind of try to outdo each other. 😉 I can’t help but mention the worst Christmas light display I have ever seen.
After living in NYC for a while you start to expect the unexpected.
I was driving to a rotation in the Bronx one fall and I happened to see a house FULL of mannequins in the front yard. They were covered with white plastic bags. I wondered about it every time I drove by for weeks. It kind of gave me an unsettling feeling because frankly…mannequins can be creepy sometimes (or maybe it’s just me)….and why would someone have a yard full of them?!?
It wasn’t until it got closer to Christmas that I realized it was part of a Christmas display. Apparently it’s a Hollywood themed Christmas display. I think they’ve been doing this since the 1970s.
As much as I dislike this Christmas light display…for some odd reason it makes me smile when I think of it. I guess because it reminds me of what I liked about NYC….diversity….and…the fact that anything goes.
I’m just glad I’m not their neighbor. You can see some pictures at this website. Check out the videos below.
Btw…my Yonkers readers…how’s that house (you know which one I’m talking about) doing with their holiday decorations this year? There’s this one house that fills their yard with holiday themed decorations (Easter, Halloween, etc.). It’s quite a sight. Here are a couple of pictures from Halloween one year.
