Holiday Balance

Finally, the counterbalancing display to the Metropolitan Avenue extravaganza appeared. Likely yesterday, one of the mega-houses at the top of Fairmount Hill stuck its annual huge, honking wreath on.

This is maybe 7 feet across, replete with blinking colored lights…and God’s extension cord.

It’s at the top of Milton Avenue, two football fields away from the other big display.

We are humble ground dwellers. I’ll put out the electric luminarias in a day or two…without aid of an aerial lift or even a ladder. Neighbors have small herds of wire-frame reindeer and such. Around HP, alternately flaccid-by-day and alert-in-the-dark inflatables.

We are amateurs.
