Christmas decorations - intro



“Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations.  The bad news is that I had to take him down after two days.  I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.  Great stories.  But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.
Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn’t realize that it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy).  By the way, she was one of the many people who attempted to do that.  My yard couldn’t take it either.  I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."

  3. Had me laughing my head off. I know a couple of people do things like that around here, down the side roads where there is less traffic. Hilarious, shame you had to remove it but I can understand why.

  6. Er... maybe if the 'dummy' had been dressed as Father Christmas it would have only raised smiles instead of understandable concern.
