FAST FORWARD TO THE YEAR 2012

 

TODAY WE WILL ENTER ANOTHER WORLD!

 

PLEASE JOIN US ON THIS WONDERFUL JOURNEY!

In the world of Penny & Bernie Dvorak, there are two Spirits of Christmas. First there is the religious “Christian Spirit,” which adorns our living room window. Although there are more details to view, up close and in person, we have completed our abbreviated “Christian Spirit” tour!

Penny & I will now enjoy presenting another viewpoint. This display represents the , “Secular Spirit” of Christmas! It is for our children & our grandchildren.This is the magic of ‘make believe.’ It is the spirit of Santa Clause! Here it stands, tucked in a corner of our living room….…vibrant in all of its mystical splendor. 

Penny and I  happily present, for your enjoyment ….
The North Pole!

It is interesting to note that if one is standing at the (magnetic) north pole, one can walk in only ONE direction i.e …. SOUTH!
Your rate of rotation (speed) is fractional, essentially zero. However, standing at the equator, your speed of rotation would be 1,038 MPH !
Sometimes Santa himself is confused by all of this.! His reindeer never are!

Please note the whimsical effect that ‘BLACK LIGHT creates in this display.  ‘BLACK LIGHT is not just for Halloween displays anymore!

In this magical world of make believe, the elves have created workshops for everything under the su…errr… aurora borealis!
(you see there are six months of daylight and six months of dusk. Northern lights often enhance our visibility)

The ice is slippery, so please watch your step as you pass thru the entrance gate of the North Pole

Now let’s begin this narrative with our two main characters, Mr. & Mrs. Clause.
What a great woman, this Mrs. Clause. She reminds me of a military wife, always concerned for her man’s wellbeing, and praying for his safe return
Here we see Mrs. Claus standing in front of their home. She waves “God Speed” to Santa as he completes his second check of “THE LIST”!
His reindeer have been well fed in advance of their journey around the world. They are ANXIOUS and READY TO ROLL!

Reindeer receive an extraordinary amount of flight training. They must be ‘instrument rated’ before they are permitted to join the team.
First they solo. Next they fly formation in teams of two. This deer is making its first solo flight. Listen to this final transmission from flight control;

“REINDEER 12242012 … YOU ARE CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF…STRAIGHT OUT DEPARTURE APPROVED …FLY OR DIE…HAVE A GOOD DAY!”

We must shut her down for now.
I hope to see all of you back here in the morning!...
