Anson County North Carolina has not seen any snowfall on Christmas Day
since 1947 and we were very close this year of having a White Christmas,
however it didn't start snowing until around midnight and I took a few pixs
of our Christmas yard decor the following morning December 26, 2010.
My Northern friends grin at us down South since we rarely see any
significant snowfall and most of the time it will snow and immediately
freeze a solid crust on top. The snow this morning is of the powdery
type and very pretty.
With all the commercialization of our CHRISTMAS Holiday and so many
attempting to get on the Political Correctness
Band Wagon of not
wishing to offend anyone and to me they have no backbone and don't stand for
anything that really matters and mere puppets; "Pull my little strings and
I'll do anything." Without Jesus Christ our Lord and
Savior, there would be no Christmas since Christ
is the Reason for the Season! Whatever your personal
Faith and Religion are, it is your choice and right; I choose to be a
Christian! I have a lighted
Star of David and a
about 40 feet above ground to give symbolic tribute to the Christmas Season and
several Angels to go along with the traditional seasonal decor.
Laus Deo "Praise be to God." With
that said, below are some pixs of the Porter Home Christmas Yard Decor;

My bride did the detail painting on the yard decor projects except the
sleigh and I handled all the brawn stuff like fabrication and maybe a base
coat or two of paint and sprayed the clear sealer coat on them...she is the
artist not me! Our youngest daughter Lisa Dianne would comment about
angles not having red hair so my bride fixed that whereby painting one of
the angles with red hair....you guessed it, Lisa Dianne has red
hair....grin if you must!
This has been a very special and wonderful Christmas this year with my
Mom still with us and attending our Christmas Dinner. She is a cancer
survivor and not too long ago had a pace maker inserted and doing fairly
God is good and merciful to us all whether we acknowledge him or not!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

UPDATE: Mom departed this
life to be with her Lord and Savior on May 1, 2011 succumbing to congestive
heart failure and is greatly missed.
