Last year, the guy on my block who decorates his yard and home for each holiday didn't do anything special for the Fourth of July.

So he's making good that deficit this year. He's got red, white and blue plastic icicles hanging on the trees in his front yard. Big red and blue five-pointed stars (some of which are decorated with little white five-pointed stars) are everywhere, as are red, white and blue pinwheels and red and blue bows. There is a parade of patriotically-dressed figures on the front yard. Several appear to be soldiers (I counted at least one Marine and an army officer), but two are Snoopies. I learned by observation yesterday that the figures are spotlit at night.

And the holiday tree is back in the front window. With more stars on it, naturally.

As I pointed the current decorations out to [livejournal.com profile] esrblog he said to me, "Where do they keep all that stuff?" Given the general tidiness and orderliness of the place, I'd guess they're packed into neatly labeled boxes in the basement, one for each holiday.

My neighbor down the street took down his orange lights and other Halloween accoutrements with impressive speed. He has replaced the scarecrows and skeletons with turkeys and an assortment of Pilgrims, and has only one orange electric candle in each window (and the spotlight on the front yard where the turkeys now are) to illuminate the scene at night. The plastic jack o'lantern over the lantern by the front door, however, remains.
