Deck the halls … and the chandelier, the porch, the yard
‘Tis the season for those
elaborate holiday decors
Contributing Reporter

t’s that time of year again: time to spend
a chilly afternoon (or two) hanging lights
on the front porch, choosing the perfect
tree for the living room and decorating
the front door with the wreath. When the
temperature drops and the string holding
the Christmas tree to the top of the mini-
van snaps, you might wonder why anyone
would voluntarily go to the extreme for
holiday decorating.
While we mere mortals may wonder
exactly what’s behind those sparkling bea-
cons that make us slow down the car as we
drive by, those responsible for the dramatic
displays say it’s all about their interpreta-
tion of the holiday spirit.
Scott McAdam, president of McAdam
Landscaping, has long helped area hom-
eowners turn
tu their yards into
winter wonderlands.
“In a normal
