Operation Christmas Hell TIPSter Mike sent me a picture which reminds me that I forgot one very basic rule of Christmas decorating:
Christmas spirt and school spirit should never, ever be mixed. Ever.

That's nothing...you should've seen the 3 ft tall, 5 ft. wide Razorback hog done in red Christmas lights that was on the downtown square. Unfortunately, we couldn't get close enough to get a clear photo. It was hideous.

Oh, man -- we saw a whole slew of new ones last night, Michele -- totally horrifying.
I also saw an apt. building off the #6 train this AM at 6:15 that was about 12 stories tall, with half the balconies lit.
Scary stuff, up here in Da Bronx.

I dont' care how prosperous NW Arkansas is, you couldn't pay me enough money to live in Fayettenam for that very reason.

I am from Arkansas and last year we were driving down the road and saw a car (one of the long ones from the 80s) that was decked out in christmas lights...and they were blinking! Talk about redneck christmas...

My house overlooks a house with a 10 foot tall inflatable Santa. It's white trash at its commercialization-of-Christ best.
P.S. This is my first time seeing this blog. It's nice! It and my new(ish) blog were listed in another blog as blogs to see. What a weird world I've entered. It's a very bloggy Christmas. Feel free to peruse: http://www.tinypineapple.com/dan

oh, and if you have a christmas tree, hug it for me!
Because hugging and decorating aren't all that dissimilar....

Tam, we saw a pick-up the other night in front of the Waffle House with similar decorations, completely covered from bumper to bumper with blinking Christmas lights...alas, we didn't have a camera with us.
How does anyone think that's a good idea?

LOL Rita, I don't know how anyone can say it's a good idea...or how they even decided to put lights on their vehicle. I've seen yards that had boats and tractors decorated also. I wonder is it only in arkansas that this happens? (not to mention the hog decorations like the one mentioned in this post and your comment earlier. Hideous)
