Ah, the Wonderful World of Christmas…the title is taken directly from Mr. Smiff. That is his description of his Uncle Daniel Boone’s (yes, that’s his real name) Christmas display. The same Uncle Daniel Boone who used to call Christmas Eve to offer us some Christmas Cheer (after dipping into the Cheer hisself) and sing "Jump in the bed and cover up ya head ’cause Santy Claus comes too-naaat." You haven’t lived til you’ve been serenaded by a happy, jolly Daniel. It makes life worth living.
Your Sista is on the lookout for wacky, tacky and any light display that would make Clark W. Griswold envious. Why, right here in my own backyard in Hendersonville, we have mucho lightos. I was surprised to see, driving around this evening how my fellow Hendersonvillians were busy little bees putting them lights up today.
I can’t think of a better place to begin the Wonderful, Wacky Christmas Tour than with the grandaddy of all tacky light displays in this part of town….Forget the House of Cash, we’ve got the House of Trash, deep in the heart of Hendersonville. And we’re so proud.
I can’t help but think Conway Twitty turns flips in his grave every year about this time when the switch is pulled at the place he called home. I mean, yeah, Conway first lit up what is now known as Trinity City, USA, but, at least he had real, live reindeer. I long for the days Conway would wish us a "Merry Twismas" everytime I pass TBN all lit up in its splendor. Paul and Jan Crouch have no live reindeer at this display, no siree. It’s all about the baby Jesus in the manger here.
Everybody knows I love Jesus. I’m not knocking keeping Christ in Christmas, in fact, I think we need a little more of Him in the middle of everything. If this complex had any other names besides Paul, King of the Closet Homosackshul Preacher and Jan, Queen of the Pink Hair, attached to it, I wouldn’t even as much as giggle.
Heck, I’d find it more believable if it was Sarcastro’s channel, complete with him handling snakes and speaking in tongues, but, I digress.
I hear that the Holiday Grinch is copying this idea for his/her house.
And just think, even YOU can go see this in person. Take I-65 North…take the Vietnam Veterans Bypass…lucky you, there are signs along the way. Take the Indian Lake Blvd. exit. Turn right…go about 2 miles to East Main. Turn left. Go a mile or two down the road, where it turns into Johnny Cash Pkwy…and well, you can’t miss it unless you are blind.
Stay tuned for more. Hee. Do shoot me an email if you know if some wonderfully awful decorations.
