Christmas Decoration Yard Show

Since we moved to the neighborhood five years ago, one house just up the street always has a compelling yard display at Christmastime. I always promise myself to get pictures, and finally this year I walked over with camera in hand. It just so happened that Mr. Williams was working on his display when I arrived, and graciously gave his permission to take some pictures. He utilizes nearly all the plants in his yard, whether evergreen or bare, to hang and support the decorative elements. As far as I'm concerned, Christmas yard decorations are an American folk art, and I appreciate the generosity of people who install them for the delight of others. So Merry Christmas from Mr. and Mrs. Williams, who have been doing this at their home for 45 years.


  1. Kudos to the Williamses for doing up their yard year after year.

  2. That's very creative. I like the way Mrs. Williams is adjusting her husband's collar for him. Very sweet.

  3. After agreeing to have their photo taken, she was prepping him for his closeup, and I thought this picture was better than the posed ones. They really are nice folks.
