To be clear, these photos were taken in Winter 2004/5. The decorations have only gotten more out of control since these were taken. Also, the music has gotten louder and more annoying. Tons of people come here every year and park the wrong way on my street. They leave garbage, mittens, gym shoes and food wrappers all over the place. The news comes. It's awesome. I have a little mantra of reminding myself that, "this house brings a lot of people joy" HO HO HO! and all that shit.
This is the view from the sidewalk in front of my house. I will take some shots from my window tonight so you can get a real feel for my view.
