Folks at The Holler celebrate Christmas in a Big Way!
One of our neighbors fills their multiple acre property with hundreds of decorations.
Each year there are more!
Many of them have moving parts. There is a almost life size Santa flown airplane with a runway that lands!
Some are twenty feet tall and the lighted trees are taller!
And this is all done by one Hollerite family!
Christmas is serious out here. I think the coyotes are impressed because they don’t chew the electric cables and coyotes chew EVERYTHING!
To be honest I get the Christmas bug too…..
But not to the same impressive degree!
Happy Holler Christmas to you and yours!

So the coyotes have turned on the christmas mood… 😀
Very inspiring, dear Cindy.
Happy holidays… 🙂
I expect at any moment to see them in Santa hats! 🎄
Merry Christmas Cindy! Lovely lights~ I don’t mind if I took a selfie with that dinosaur.
That would be an especially t-rexific selfie! 🎄
Happy Christmas to you too, Cindy.
Beautiful decorations Cindy. Merry Christmas to you and yours 🙂
Happy Christmas to you also, Cindy. These decorations are fabulous. 🙂 — Suzanne

Fantastic Christmas decorations.
Thank you and Happiest Holidays my friend. 🎄🎄
Happy Holidays Friend! 🌲☃️
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas Cindy!
Joyful Holidays… Merry Christmas…
Cindy, if you hadn’t mentioned that this was decoration at a house, I might have mistook all this for a parade! Most festive sight I’ve seen this season for sure! Happy to see that you’re in the spirit of things as well. Happy Holler Christmas to you as well! <3
It looks like something a small town would do in the central park! 🎄🎄
The photos are wonderful filled with the spirit of the holiday. It must be a thrill to just sit and watch the beauty of it all every night. How exciting and for the children especially. I grew up in New York and Rockefeller Center was magical at Christmas. Even now at 73 I continue to get that same feeling of wonderment when I get a chance to visit New York.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I have only seen Rockefeller at Christmas in photos. It looks utterly magical! 🎄🎄
What a treat to live near such a beautiful holiday display. Your decorations also are gorgeous, Cindy. You have an incredible eye for the aesthetic. Merry Christmas, sweet friend 💖
Back to you in bunches dear friend! 🎄🎄
Wow, lovely Christmas decor….looks so festive!
There are no Scrogges living in that house! 🎄🎄
Happy happy happy Christmas <3
Very Happy Christmas to you and your family also, Cindy. Thank you for another year of great posts.
Merry Christmas Cindy. 🙂
Ich wünsche Dir liebe Cindy und deiner Familie von Herzen frohe Weihnachten.
Frohe Weihnachten! 🎄🎄⛄ 🎄🎅
Amazing! How beautiful…
I wish you a nice weeek, Cindy.
All the colored lights make christmas special. Great shots. Love the hall table decorations.
How do you get those emoticons in FB?
You have to use FB’s stickers unfortunately. The emojis are much better.
I didn’t know FB had some. Where do you find them.
When you are reading a post from someone on FB, you get a reply box at the bottom, next to that is a smiley face icon, click on it, you will get a choice of FB stickers. Just click on one and then click enter. Bingo, there it is!
If you want to personalize your sticker more, you can type in an adjective in the search bar on the FB sticker page, like happy for example, and you’ll get a bunch of icon choices for that emotion.
Thanks. Good to know. Merry Christmas and hope 2017 is a great year.
Wow!!!! That is absolutely amazing. I have never seen anything quite like it. They most certainly have the Christmas spirit.
Joyeux Noël to everyone.🌲🎅🏽
Your Christmas looks very fine and festive. And the Holler lights have the wow factor. Plus you get all the fun without the hard work.
….and Merry Christmas to you too, Cindy.
(my feeble array of decorations are staying in their boxes for the 2nd year running 🙂 )
Laughing, I hear and can relate! Mine have toned done too since the kids are grown~ 🎄🎄
And a Happy Holidays to you too.
Please remember to enjoy Xmas responsibly and not leave any empty bottles. 🙂
Right. It is important to be a responsible drunk or Santy Claus might give me a lump of coal!!!! 😉 🎅
Lovely photos,happy Christmas to you too. 🙂
Yes my Dear, you too got the Christmas bug. Love it 🙂
Merry Christmas to you too Cindy and thanks for the lovely photos 🙂
Lovely pics! Merry Christmas.
More sweet memories in the making! God is all about parties, celebrating, community, delight and joy! The Angels made the announcement to the shepherds watching over their flock by night. They announced the arrival of the prophesied Messiah. Come see! He’s here!!! This is GREAT, JOYFUL news!! Come see! At the same time God announced the same to kingly men in the far East who were always studying the stars for signs and messages. It took 2 years of following the star before they finally arrived in Bethlehem of Judea. They came because they wanted to honor the newly arrived King with gifts. What an amazing quest to follow a star that was never before seen in the sky to peer into the face of a king that was heralded by the stars!!!
And so we decorate and delight and light up trees and exchange gifts for we are celebrating the birthday of the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD! Wow!
Thank you for sharing the party in your neck of the woods! Your decorations are beautiful! Have a sweet and joyous time!
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and the Holler.
(But please don’t send me your neighbor’s electric bill!)
Can you even imagine it????? 🎄🎄
Happy Christmas 🎄 I loved your cheerful photographs 🙋🏼💕
Thanks for the Christmas joy. I did not decorate for a few years due to my MCS. This year I was going to give it a go. But as you know I have two new kittens. Ronan must be part coyote because he loves to chew everything especially wires. Wilhelmina was a soccer player in a former life and all those round Christmas ornaments would be too much of a temptation. Here’s hoping all your Christmas wishes come true. <3
Cracking up! Those cats are a real work saver for you!!!! 😉 😉 🎄
That they are. They are also great at cleaning up all lose crumbs on the floors. Peace.
Your photos of the bright and colorful lights are a wonderful way to brighten the blogosphere today, stave off the darkness. Your decorations most elegant, Cindy. Greetings to the all in the Holler.
Happy Holiday, Cindy. I’ll be decorating today, but I don’t think it will be quite as elegant as yours.since Tornado Boy will be here for Christmas.Ha ha. Have a lovely Christmas and amazing new year full of adventure. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
These pets are just the best because they save you so much work!!! Laughing! 🎄🎅
Oh, my goodness me, Cindy, and there was me thinking my neighbour’s inflatable Santa climbing up his house, plus a few lights, is OTT. I haven’t put any decorations up yet, and will probably only be bringing a few sprigs of holly into the house at the last moment! Have been singing lots of carols, though, and still plenty more to follow, so am doing my bit for Christmas. Plus, I’ll be putting on my cook’s apron and dishing up some culinary delights over the holiday.
Wishing you a joyous Christmas 🙂
Sounds like a wonderful holiday at your house. There is no way I could do what my neighbors do, but it does set a festive tone. Happy Holidays Sarah! 🎅
Happy Holidays to you and your family, as well Cindy. I can tell by your decorations that you are a traditionalist. 🙂 I get the ‘old time Christmas’ feel. Peggy and I have been out on some jaunts to see Christmas lights. I’ll post one that featured wildlife for Christmas eve. –Curt
Oh, can’t wait to see that! 🎄🎅
Happy Holidays Cinddy to you and your family and may 2017 be an abundant one!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Cindy!
Your decorations are just beautiful, Cindy. Wishing you and yours a lovely and fun Christmas and New Year! 🙂
Seriously Beautiful!! Merry Christmas to you, Cindy!
Thanks for the smiles and happy holler holiday hootenanny! XD I enjoy Christmas decorating too and we have a family in town that creates a spectacle so big that it’s a tourist attraction!
Merry Christmas to you and yours Cindy! ☃️🎄
I love those people! I could never do it but I love seeing it! 🎄🎅
Me too. I copied them from someone’s comments! 🙂
Laughing,I meant I love people who go to get effort to make elaborate Christmas displays! 🎁
That too! 🎄🎅
These photos just made me smile, thank you Cindy. I love Santa on a bulldozer, that’s a first! Have yourself a fun Holler Christmas, my friend~~
Well the t-rex bearing gifts was a especially nice touch too! Laughing……..⛄ 🎅
Happy Chistmas to you Cindy!
Beautiful – looks like our Candy Cane Lane!
It does! 🎄🎄⛄ 🎄🎅
Happy Holidays to you and your family. <3
Dear Cindy , Merry Christmas to you 🎅🏼🎄
Equally, Merry Christmas. !!!
Ugh, that looks like my family’s house in Florida (when they lived there) LOL
I hear and understand! Laughing….. 🎄
Hee..happy winter solistice!
I can only imagine what it would be like to grow up having to put up and take down these lights each year. If you choose to do it, okay, but anything else could be heinous. Happy Winter Solstice to you!❄️❄️
Ha I know!
But, was able to write an article about it for local paper (family member’s decorations) LOL
Well, there you go, there was a light behind all those lights!!!!!

Merry Christmas, Cindy, from your Northern California friend!
Merry Christmas, Cindy, to you and yours — love the decorations!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Cindy…love the lights and your home decorations are FANTASTIC 🙂
Oh, what a wonderful, colorful series, Cindy. Great shots.
All the Holler displays are impressive including yours. We have some too and I look forward to seeing them every year.
They are a lot of fun as long as I don’t have to put them and take them down! 🎅
All the very very best to you and yours during this festive season. Rest up!!! New adventures await us in 2017!!! Hugs and love coming your way.
Visa versa 2UX2 my dear Rebecca! 🎅
Reblogged this on Still Another Photoblog.
Thank you for your kind thoughtfulness and may the joy of the season visit you and yours~ ☃
You are welcome! May your holiday season be equally blessed!
Happy holidays, Cindy. Quite lovely colors dress your night. : )
I nominated you for the Liebster Award – but, if your blog is award free then you are under no obligation to participate. I just wanted to show my appreciation for your excellent blog and the beautiful photographs that you share!
I am honored and touched by your kindness my dear friend. I am award free but I feel your thoughtfulness like a very special gift from a very special friend. Be well my friend and thank you~ <3 <3

Thank you for the lovely Christmas photos, Cindy! And Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas Cindy! Christmas Wolfie hugs and howls! 😉
Merry Christmas! I appreciate those who put a lot of efforts decorating their yards with all these fantastic items for us to enjoy.
So do I! 🎁🎁☃☃
Merry CHRISTmas to you and yours dear Cindy! Love and hugs, N 🙂 <3
Withing you a Very Merry Christmas and God’s richest blessings in the New Year, Cindy! <3
Happy Christmas to you and yours Cindy.
It is a wow. I just took more family in tow to see the show! 🕯
Yours looks gorgeous and European on the table, Cindy.
In the hallway or on the entrance way table under the beautiful mirror it reminds me of Spain, Portugal or Mexican origin. This had sparkers of pinkish purple which my grandies might say looks like the new Troll’s girl, Poppy’s hair! 🙂
The outdoor displays are festive and cheerful in the Holler!
Merry Christmas to you and yours and may wonders continue to warm your hearts into the New Year’s too. <3
You are incredibly observant Robin with an eye for detail and miss nothing. This is unusual. May the peace of the season stay with you and yours in the coming year my friend~ 🕯
Stunning photos of the festive season Cindy. Wishing you a beautiful Christmas and New Year filled with love, light, peace and health. <3
Ahhh, my sweet friend the same to you and yours, a year filled with love and 🕯~
Thank you Cindy. <3
Happy Holidays! Gorgeous photos! Absolutely beautiful!
Being able to see beauty is a reflection back on those who can find it.
Merry Christmas !
So glad I stopped by at the Holler this morning, Cindy! 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and happiest of New Years.
You’d think we were Grinches for sure if you stopped by our home in Portugal – nary a Christmas decoration in sight. However, we still have the spirit on Christmas Day and want to wish you and yours a Very Happy Christmas! Anita
No I wouldn’t think that at all. I don’t put out exterior lights anymore and I do modest decorations inside. I respect differences among people. Happiest Holidays to you both! ☃
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas Cindy
Merry Christmas, Cindy and Happy New Year. I love seeing all the decorations. So many in my neighborhood do very little as they are either old, infirmed or without financial resources to do much. But fortunately there are a few that can light up the world for the rest of us. 🙂 Love your inside decor. Festive and happy.
wow so cool! Merry Christmas!
Tanti auguri, un abbraccio grande, <3
And a merry Christmas to you from Belgium <3
Merry Christmas and lease eat some Belgian Christmas chocolate for me. We don’t have it here! ☃
That shouldn’t be a problem 😀
You are in the Christmas spirit ~ wonderful! Your post helped me get there too 🙂
Oh what fun! Thank you for sharing this Christmas spirit Cindy! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas 🎄🌟🎅
You are doing a great job with Christmas decorations! Merry Christmas to you and yours at the holler!
Merry Christmas to you Cindy! This was lovely and magical!
In a kinda-kooky-fun way! ❄️
Wow, some folks really have it badly! 😉 Reminds me of the Grinch movie where there is fierce neighborhood competition for the biggest display. I loved that machine-gun that spat out strings of lights, ha!
Your display is beautifully restrained. 🙂 Happy Christmas to y’all at the Holler!
Once the kids grew up, exterior lights were a thing of the past, and I was always rather minimalistic! Remember Chevy Chase’s Christmas Vacation movie, when he turns on his excessive holiday lights he’s blows the transformer for the whole neighborhood! Laughing…..
Oh, yes! Great movie.
It was so ridiculous but funny that I still remember it~
My personal favorite is A Christmas Story. “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!” And that leg lamp, hilarious!
Something wrong with these pictures, Cuz. What happened to all the snow ??? These pics remind me of Florida when we lived there. They decorated for Christmas there more than most places here in the Midwest
Otherwise how would you know it is Christmas here? You gotta put some lights on the palm trees! Laughing….
Beautiful! Happy Christmas to you too, Cindy… 🙂
Merry Christmas to you too Cindy!
Reblogged this on penpowersong.
Aw this is just what I needed since there isn’t any decorations in the entire area I’m staying in 🙁 so thank you and Merry christmas! 🎁
Awww, Merriest Christmas to you. And thank you too~ 🕯🕯🕯
That is a BIG way of lighting up the holidays! Best wishes for a wonderful Holiday Season to you & yours at the Holler!
Check out this photo I just found at genius.com:
Merry Christmas! 🙂
What great fun! I love that the dinosaur is part of Christmas…LOLOL Thank you.
Christmas tractors and dinos make for a Holly Jolly Christmas!!! 🌟🎄☃
Happy Hollar Jolly-er Christmas to you, Cindy! 🙂 💜 Jackie@KWH
Laughing! Love this!!! 🌟🎄☃
Happy Holidays, Cindy 🙂
Christmas in the Holler should be a television show. 🙂
Tee hee hee! Kinda like a California Hee Haw! Laughing….. 🎄❄️🌟
Now that’s a great description!
We notice that the further back in the woods our neighbors are the more likley they have extensive displays. Some friends ask why we put up lights on our porch and deck when “no one will see them”. “For us”, I reply. I believe that Mary and Joseph arrive with the donkey at the stable this afternoon. The shepherd and sheep are in the woods, nearby, too. The Magi start their trek to 12th Night Monday, at our neighbor’s fire-ring. Merry Christmas.
You rock Oscar!! Merriest Christmas to you and your family my friend~ 🎄❄️🌟
very beautiful! happy christmas to you! ♪♫♫ ♪♫♫
And to you! 🎄❄️🌟🎄❄️🌟
You said “Christmas is serious here”… you guys take it to the next level of seriousness. But beautiful, a very Christmassy spirit. Here in my house there are absolutely no decorations. Not even Santa came….. he´s getting old and too fat is my guess.
Merry Christmas again
Well I didn’t actually do any exterior lights, it was a fellow Hollerite whose lights you were seeing here. I decorate a bit inside though. Hope your Christmas and New Year are kind to you Charly~
Forgot. Let´s see if I can read the reply later on if you do reply…. so reply!
Now it is Happy New Year Charly!
Well, it seems Christmas is a time to light up the Holler. Hope your’s was very merry. Hugs.
I get tired just looking at it!!! Laughing. Happy New Year!
A happy and healthy New Year to you, Cindy.
¡Feliz Navidad y un gran año 2017, amiga!
Prospero ano nuevo y espero compartir 2017 contigo! 🍾🍾
I am always amazed at the dedication and spirit of Christmas that these people share with the world around them, just stunning. Hope you had a lovely peaceful Christmas my friend and best wishes and safe travelling in 2017, where ever that may take you.
Back to you Pauline. I hope 2017 has good things in store for you! <3
Happy holidays to one of our most admired digital photographer! May your 2017 be filled with love, joy, and more stunning photos!
Awww, you are so thoughtful and this comment touched my <3. Happy New Year!
Wow! I thought my neighborhood went all out for Christmas! Your neighbor with the 20 feet decorations should charge admission! 😉 Have a Happy New Year! 😀
It’s over the top isn’t it, but lots of fun to see!
Wow! i love seeing all that holiday spirit! Great shots, Cindy, <3
Thanks much and Happy New Year! 🍷🎊🎈🎉🎆💃
They are stunning, but I do worry about the environmental impact…
It is pretty over the top isn’t it! Happy New Year Hilary~
What a fun post– so bright and festive Cindy!! Hope your Christmas was a sweet memorable time. hugs!
Hope you had a lovely Christmas Cindy, and all the best for 2017. x
Visa versa 2UX2! <3
Fine pictures of species unique to your neighbourhood.
