This picture was taken at a location now only known to us as "The Deer Park House". This is a house in Deer Park, NY, where the process of decorating the house for Christmas starts some time after Valentine's Day. Unlike a lot of other houses, where it looks like a store full of Christmas lights and decorations vomited on the front lawn, this house actually has some fun things to look at. There are rows of wooden soldiers, nine life-like reindeer, and Mickey Mouse and his friends ice-skating in the front yard. I am happy to look at other people's Christmas displays because I have no intention of putting on one of my own. The next time my son asks me why we don't have any Christmas lights, I am going to tell him that if everybody had Christmas lights, he wouldn't enjoy them as much. One must know dark before one can appreciate the light.
See some other folks who enjoy keeping the power company in business.
