Back in the early 70's my dad and our neighbor gradually escalated an undeclared Christmas decoration war. Each vied to see how many lights they could hang from their houses. I think my dad actually had to jumper around the fuse box to add extra electrical circuits.

Then one year my dad bought a plastic, lighted Frosty the Snow Man. The neighbor responded in force with a light-up Santa and THREE reindeer, which went up on the roof. I don't think we ever took the lead again. Eventually Santa was retired to their attic, where he slumbered for decades. The neighbors recently sold their house, and nostalga led me to ask if they would consider selling the set. They graciously gave it to me. I expected to have to do a lot of work on a 30+ year old set, but a good bath and a little wiring repair put Santa back in business.

A bit earlier in this string I posted photos of the 40 year old Santa and reindeer, relics of a long-past decoration war between my father and our neighbor. It turns out my sister still had the first salvo in that war - a light-up Frosty The Snow Man, tucked back in the attic. Now, at long last, the two adversaries are now compatriots.

Santa's lost his ribbon bow tie, but these have been my favorite Christmas decorations for pretty much my entire life. I remember having to insist to my family more than one year that they were NOT going to be thrown out or left hidden away in a box. I'm very happy that they've now come to live with me!

Found this Pom Pom tree at a yard sale this summer in it's original box.. The box was pretty chewed up but I managed to save a piece of it with its original sticker purchased from Woolworths on Broadway, Newburgh NY..

Every summer when yard sale season starts and I find the occasional vintage ornament or piece, I stick them in a box and the box sits in the corner of the dinning room until Christmas time and that box is pretty damn full right now.

Well on top of what we've already picked up this spring & summer, today I found these.. Not a bad haul for a day..




And yard sale season isn't over yet! Merry Christmas in August!
