Flat Nutcracker

IMG_0614

Willow Glen gets into the winter holiday spirit with charming, funny, and bright house decorations. Some are more successful than others. The stores have different offerings each season. This year, icicle lights with blue-white flashing patterns – like creepy daggers hung along the roof line – are unfortunately popular. For several years, large blow-up characters have appeared front lawns. These Santas, bears, elves, and snowmen look good at night but very sad lying flat on the grass during the day.  I commented on her deflated nutcracker when our neighbor was outside recently – she said it is fun to see him pop up, light up, and fling off the accumulated rain every night when he turns back on.
