There's a special little surprise tucked away in the historic Wolflin district of Amarillo, Texas. Yes, really.

Yesterday, I was headed home from our Help4TheHolidays donation drive and headed east on 34th Avenue. I had passed Georgia Street and was halfway to Washington street when I saw a giant red gleam on the left out of the corner of my eye.

And what I saw was enough to make me quickly flip a (probably illegal) U-turn and then turn right onto the 3200-block of Hawthorne Drive.

Here's A Sight To Behold


I couldn't believe my eyes.

Someone...some brilliant person had managed to talk every homeowner on the block into displaying a giant, 10-foot tall inflatable Santa in their front yard.

The results?

Absolutely fabulous.

I could barely contain myself as I drove down the slight curve of Hawthorne. It was equal parts giggle, glee, and wonder. I suppose this is what they call the Christmas magic.

I ooooh-ed and ahhhh-ed my way down Hawthorne, and when I hit the roundabout, I went ahead and took the long way home through Wolflin. After the row of 10-foot-tall Santas had welcomed me to the neighborhood, I figured why not?

It would be rude to turn away such a wonderful welcome by an entire residential block of Jolly Saint Nick.

So, whoever the brilliant mastermind behind this Christmas 2023 stunt is....thank you. I needed to have that Christmas magic to enjoy.

And to the homeowners of 3200-block of Hawthorne Drive, bless you! And Merry Christmas.

As for the citizens of Amarillo, go take a look for yourself! It's fantastic.

Whoever talked every homeowner on the entire block into hoisting up a 10-foot Santa in their front yard is going to be President some day.
