They keep growing in popularity. Many houses in my neighborhood have them. I’m talking about the inflatable Christmas lawn ornaments. I have a love hate relationship with them. I like them at night when they’re inflated and erect as a symbol of Christmas cheer. I hate them during the day when they’re deflated; looking like it was involved in a hit-and-run accident. I hated it when my neighbor (directly across the street) displayed his so its light shone bright thru my bedroom window, making it hard to sleep.

I feel sorry for the people who have to battle to get in and out of their own driveway as it’s blocked by cars that come from far and near to see their neighbors lights; the lights which can be seen from space. It’s easy to get carried away when decorating for Christmas. I know. Every year I have to reign in my husband and remind him, “More may be merrier, but more can also be tacky.”
