Somehow, despite the rush to get ready for Christmas there are occasional moments of reflection or appreciation. Each day between now and Dec. 25, we'll share a thought or a tip for the holidays, or a memory of seasons past.
These past few weeks, while on the way to pick up my son at the sitter, I've encountered a spectacular light show as I drive up Hollins Ferry Road in Lansdowne.
There are, perhaps, a half-dozen homes whose owners apparently believe that decking the halls is not enough. One in particular catches my eye. There are two Santas about 3 feet high, and an enormous Santa's head is propped in the middle of a miniature wooden wishing well. A couple of reindeer prance around the front yard, and two small ones sit by demurely. Near the sidewalk, Frosty the Snowman keeps watch. Three cherubic carolers are perched in one corner.
