Cute--funny to see it with no snow. Cheerful, anyway, and a nice clear picture.

A jolly, puffy ol' guy isn't he?

I was driving past a house today that used to have an inflatable Santa on the roof. Well, something happened and poor Santa was flat as a pancake. I sorta felt sorry for him.

It certainly livens up the neighborhood. Maybe you could introduce him to the Michelin man.

There are many of these around town, but most of the time they are deflated and sadly lying on the ground. I'm not sure who the culprit is, the wind, the cold air or the neighborhood prankster.

Il est très beau!
Is it true that Santa Claus is the invention of coca cola? :)
I'm on vacation from my French course until January 4!wow Time to rest a little bit!
Now I can finish the preparations for Christmas!

Leif Hagen said...

I know that's not the REAL Santa - you can't fool me!

Jarart said...

It makes a happy picture. I've seen some of these around here but they are usually deflated and flat on the ground.

I dont know how anyone else feels but those blow up lawn ornaments are SO tacky

cieldequimper said...

I remember seeing those inflatable Father Christmases at WalMart in WA. For some reason, they were all above the fruit & veg department.

Louis la Vache said...

Oh, Daryl! We know you have a collection of blow up lawn ornaments!

What? They are for the Museum of Classic American Tackiness you plan to open? «Louis» forgot about that project!

Tacky? Youbetcha! My Santa today is cardboard - that is, retro-tacky. DailyPhoto should have a Santa Section.
