west side neighborhood association Christmas ~ day 9

Our neighborhood association has encouraged outdoor Christmas decorations again this year with the centerpiece being a nativity. The community college art department provided the life size characters and it really is quite nice. And in a much better location this year. For more than a decade it sat at the corner at the end of our street and then the house was sold and Halloween celebraters who loved the macabre moved in. So last year the family agreed to allow the nativity to be set up but, perhaps in silent protest, their Frankenstein monster in an electric chair remained visible, just over Joseph's left shoulder. In some ways it was prophetic but mostly it was tacky. Anyway, this year's location is much better and on a busier street to boot!
