Uncle Lamar’s very last Christmas display

December 24, 2009

Blog Guy, my family and I LOVE Christmas light displays, the bigger the better. We’ve gone all over the world. Anyway, we feel like we’ve done it all, and we’re getting jaded. Is there anything we may have missed?


Yes. Judging from a photo I just found from flooded Venice, Italy, there is about to be an astounding live action display. Have a look.

I guess that depends on whether the ladder is made of metal…. Hey kids! Look at Uncle Lamar! It’s just like watching an old time movie, isn’t it?
