Celebration of Holiday Lights display

November 25, 2013

Now through January 5 — see my display at Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton, VA, as part of the annual Celebration of Holiday Lights. Constructed by the talented M. Hillary, the theme of my display is “Books Make Great Gifts.” And, of course, you can guess which book I’m suggesting people get.

There are at least 20 other displays at the park. Here, my display is in the foreground, and a church's is in the background.
