Unless you live under a rock it's a bit hard to fail to notice the imminent arrival of the festive season!
In our house that signals the emergence of another of Saint Mike's alter egos - Clark Griswold...he of National Lampoons Vacations fame. For those of you living under above mentioned rock...this will have you shaking your head in ignorance!!
Being Canadian, SM has a thing for Christmas...in his old neighborhood there are two times of year for houses to be preened to an inch of their lives...summer, or more specifically July/August when the snow has thawed, the ground has softened and the gardens are in their glory....and December when the christmas lights get put up!
This will be our fifth christmas in our house and last year (the 4th) SM really hit his stride in the ornamentation department. We actually became a neighborhood sensation of sorts with cars driving by to see our display and people walking past with their children.
In the spirit of our very own neighborhood Clark, I've organized a neighborhood drinks & nibblies to celebrate the season of Saint Mike!!
As he's quite the traditionalist, the display will not be erected until the first weekend in December, so we've got a couple of weeks to wait.....bring it on I say :)
