glowTO: Manning on High

As mentioned in the last glowTO post, I was just strolling along Harbord (coming from a glowTO house one block over), when I noticed this glittery LED explosion from afar.

Like a lighthouse signaling to a nearing sailor, the Santa-on-a-pole at 550 Manning was calling out to me.

Santa himself appeared smiling and totally fine about being propped up on a 20-foot pole (all dirty jokes aside). Behind him, lights twinkled on trees, hedges, drain-pipes and way up on the rooftop (my fave kind).

On the first roof over the porch sat another group of holiday figurines, a firmly-secured glowing nativity scene -- Christ-child, angels, little lambs and all.

Zooming in for a photo (see the image below) I see now there was also a lone reindeer, caught between two Christmas icons in front and behind him.

A solid effort. Extra points for wrapping the trembling tree branches with red ribbon.
