inflatable christmas


please click on photo to see more detail



I am not sure what to say, how could I possibly describe this? a modern day creche perhaps? I definitely haven't seen this blow up decoration before. it amazes me how creative people can be trying to think up new ways to sell christmas. somehow this creativity gives me a lot of hope for this country's economy. what do you think? are things getting any better financially speaking?

Inflatable Holy Family! Now if that doesn't beat all! If they were in my yard, I wouldn't have the nerve to let the air out at night!!!!!

Bibi has the word for it.
My next door neighbor has an inflatable for every occasion, but I notice they lie, deflated, most of the time, so what's the point?

I love those inflatable decorations. They cost a lot of money though. I have 2 of them but they were only $20 each. I inflate them for a couple of hours at night to light them up, but I try to turn them off to safe on the electric bill.

I'm not a fan of deflatables....but ...however the holy manger scene is displayed is better than NOT being displayed at all! IMHO

Italy seems to go better financially speaking, but the Stock Exchange is quite unstable!

I've seen blowups of Santa and reindeer and snowmen, but not a nativity scene!
The ever-inventive Christmas marketing never fails to amaze.

Sweet and I like that you used an involving angle!

Good luck to all those merchants out there. I hope they do well. Have to admit—it can be very festive, but inflatable plastic just doesn't say "Christmas" to me.

Jacob said...

Yikes! Not for me. This "decoration" is full of hot air!

Inflatable seems to be the in thing in Xmas decorations - lots of them in Vegas.

No, the economy is not getting better - how can it, when unemployment is going up? People need jobs and not just minimum wage. A jobless recovery is a lie we can't believe in.

I agree with JunieRose2005. She said what I was thinking.
