If you're not yet in the holiday spirit, then perhaps you should take a drive Southwestern Boulevard in University Park. Dan Koller, managing editor of Park Cities People and my former boss, apparently did so this weekend. looking at holiday lights in the Park Cities when he stumbled upon the greatest holiday yard display in the history of ever. You can't even count all those Santas, partly because there are so many, partly because they blind you with their holy light.
The only thing that could possibly make the holiday display any more awesome would be Big Tex's disembodied head, which the house's owner, Wayne Smith, happens to own.
