The House Next Door

by L.A. Craig

I’m all in favour of a little Christmas sparkle, but that’s taking it too far. You could see it from space. And what’s an illuminated Bart Simpson got to do with Christmas? “It’s for the kids,” they say. Sod the kids and the life-size reindeer grazing on the front lawn. They’re spoiling the tone of our street.
