Happy Holidays!

December 10, 2009

For some reason, Midtown Terrace always seems to have more holiday lights than Forest Knolls. It’s always worth a drive-through, maybe even a walk-around.

And there’s this.

Just off Dellbrook, in a cul-de-sac called Greenview, the residents co-operate each year to set up an exuberantly decorated space. This year is no different. A string of colored lights across the road defines the area, and a sign says “Santa’s Court.”

Almost every house is decorated with lights, but each one’s different.

At the end of the road, there’s the north pole, Santa, reindeer, a menorah, and a sign saying Happy Holidays!

These photographs don’t do it justice… if anyone wants to send better ones, we’d be glad to publish them here.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE!

[EDITED TO ADD: People have been writing in to us to convey greetings and gratitude. So: if anyone from Greenview is reading this – thanks for the wonderful lights from your neighbors across Clarendon!]

EDITED TO ADD (DECEMBER 2010)

It’s back again this year, still as wonderful!

And – all the figures look like they’re handpainted, not commercially available cutouts.
