We ae gone but our Front Porch Bench remains lit for the neighbors to enjoy.. The house is locked up tighter than Scrooge's bankbook, so don't try to get in..I have VERY nosey neighbors keeping an eye out...Cheers

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"

Wow Denny... what a beautiful Christmas decoration !!! This is absolutely fantastic. In the US you're really specialized in this kind of things. I wish Europeans would do it too... Have a great day :)
