Wednesday, October 19, 2016 – It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas! And a Contest Too!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
And it’s not even Halloween!
We still have Thanksgiving to go
And we know there won’t be any snow
Because it’s October right now and still 90 degrees!
I went to Lowe’s hardware the other day for something and all types of Christmas decorations are ready to place in a commercial celebration of lights for homes and lawns across neighborhoods everywhere.
Therefore I have decided to conduct contest. You get to vote on which Christmas decoration you think would most irritate my Home Owners Association. Let’s look at our first round of entries. Oh yes, feel free to vote early and often.
Our first entry is the Winter Wonderland of Wire. This lovely entry has The Two Dogs of Christmas wired in their holiday wardrobe guarding The Wild Deer of Wire.
Behind the wiener wire dogs stand three large wire figures representing snow people. I noticed the one in the back in darker than the white one in the center. Is this supposed to be an ethnic snowman or just one who happens to live in an area of high pollution? Notice the smaller snow person in front. Is this the snow love child of the other two?
Moving on to the second entry we have the projectors. These are actually pretty cool. One plugs the projector into an electrical outlet and lights and messages are projected on to your house. In this example a countdown of days is projected. I do not think a countdown of days of any type would go over well in my retirement hood.
The red projector in the center is one of my favorites. It projects fireworks and has the accompanying sounds. Who wouldn’t want their neighborhood to sound like gun fire all night?
And nothing says Christmas better in Texas than a blue wire penguin standing next to a four foot tall ice blue Eiffel Tower.
Today’s entries to determine which tacky decorations would most likely irritate my HOA are:
- Winter wonderland of wire
- Countdown projection
- Fireworks and gun fire projection
- Penguins from Antarctica
- Eiffel Tower
Later we will look at large inflatables for lawn display. One again, nothing notes the holiday season better than a giant condom sitting in your front yard.
Happy Halloween. Vote early. Vote often.
