Wordless Wednesday: Holiday Bah Humbug

Wordless Wednesday: Holiday Bah Humbug

 

Bah Humbug Christmas Lights in Carlsbad 2013

 

Every year we drive around to see some of the lights in our area, in addition to taking a walk in the neighborhood.

 

Several neighbors in a condo community we drove through years ago clearly had their own take on the holiday - this is certainly not MY opinion of Christmas, of course.

 

They must have been Ebenezer Scrooge fans (this was taken December 22, 2013 - sorry the quality is not too good...maybe that was intentional LOL)

No doubt there were some neighbors who were not impressed. Maybe the HOA, too!

Merry Christmas, Paul!!

By now the spirit of Christmas past is dragging one of the occupants of that complex back over the coals

Ha ha, Ed Silva  We haven't been back to see if these lights are still around or was it only a one-time thing.  It certainly wasn't a favorite of ours but photo-worthy!

Morning Jeff.

Some people just don't get it.  So sad, people don't celebrate the season

I can certainly understand there being more bah hum bug this year with so many people struggling.

Jeff,

What happened in 2013, that someone felt like putting this message up?  Wishing you a wonderful Christmas celebration. A

Someone I know wrote a social media comment yesterday that said they knew the first half of 2021 was going to be terrible. (Actually they used stronger words.) I thought, well, if that's what they think will happen, that's what will happen for them. The people who said Bah Hum Bug were probably just being funny but I'm thinking they might not have as good as Christmas as they would have!

Well, I'm sure the Bah Humbug lights elicited a good number of laughs. What will this year bring in lights, I wonder?

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS LOL!  Those words are not in my vocabulary.  But it would still put a smile on my face to see it. How can you not enjoy Christmas lights?Merry Christmas!

Jeff, this definitely stands out, but not necessarily in a good way.   How do they really feel?

Merry Christmas to you and Diane!

Jeff I know that isn't in the Christmas spirit, but, but, but I love it.  🤪

I guess they were ahead of their time Jeff now with that said Merry Christmas anyway to you and your family, Endre

My guess is that their decorating scheme revolved around adult beverages.  I am sure their pet is named Eeyore too! 🤣 Merry Christmas! ! !
