What a Difference Between Day and Night
I've been walking my neighborhood during the day to photograph the plants and anything else interesting, and at night I've been walking my block to get pictures of the Christmas lights . Many of the prettiest displays make use of inflatable decorations that are lighted. I'm not sure how they work, but almost everyone uses them for at least part of the display. The Nativity in this photo is part of the rest of the display I will show you. This yard on the corner a block away has too much to put into one photo.
This yard has almost all inflatable decorations, with a few the more stable structures that have lights. When lit at night, there is the Nativity, Santa and his sleigh with reindeer, at the front, which is in the photo below, a very tall lit metal Christmas tree, and a rocking Santa close to the house behind everything else (above.) It's quite elaborate. Close to the driveway this year is an inflated carousel with characters that rotate. This year, though, there was a see-through veil around it – probably to guard against possible rain. I didn't take a photo of it because it was hard to see through.
All of this looks very festive at night when it's all lit up. In the day time it's a different story. Here are Santa and his reindeer during the day, along with rocking Santa in back and the Nativity in the middle behind the reindeer. Cinderella had to be careful to make sure she got to her coach before it turned into a pumpkin. These inflatable decorations lose their beauty the minute the minute they are unplugged. By night they make the yard come to life with color and light. By day, the yard looks cluttered with trash.
Do your neighbors who decorate use a lot of these?
