Christmas Light Displays: Poor Rudolph, the Red Nosed Slaindeer


No, that is not our cherry tree. This is not in front of my house, although, I would not put it past Dan. This has to be one of the more original, albeit disturbing yard decoration I have seen to date. The design also scores points for accuracy, as the deer is hung and gutted in the proper positions. (I grew up next to a deer processing operation, so I have seen a slew of slain deer.) I also enjoy subtle blood drip details as the string of scarlet lights pools below the carcass. Very nice!

That is disgusting in an awesomely creative, sick-minded genius sort of way.

Graphically the most humorous display I've seen. To those who don't think so, just don't look. Although, I'f I lived next door, I might have a few issues with the depiction.

Who say's there aren't any Grinches out there.

An interesting combination of celebrations -- Haloween and Christmas. Or -- could we say that this is a metaphor of the crucifiction? Life and Death.

...still pretty macabre

The neighborhood weenies need to get a life. Heck, the subdivision is named 'Hunter's Glen' (or something like that. I bet everyone there has heard the song 'Granma Got Runned Over By A Reindeer' and laughed.
