Well, good news and bad news about my Christmas decorations this year. Good news is I truly outdid myself. Bad news is I had to take him down after 2 days. Too many screaming people came running up to my house.
Great stories. But two things made me undecorate. First, the cops advised it would cause traffic accidents (as they almost wrecked when they drove by). Second, a 55-year-old lady who grabbed the 75-pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). She was one of many people who attempted that. My yard couldn't take it either. Lot of tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.
Kind of feel like I gave in to the man by taking him down, but my neighbor did confirm two near misses on the busy street next to my house. I think I made him too real this time.
So it was fun while it lasted!
