Merry Christmas

The Claus'.
Here's one from my files.
Christmastime Los Angeles style.
This home in Hancock Park featured a seasonal display of Santa and Mrs. Claus on the sleigh, with faux snow and several da Vinci's "David" statues.
The home was not popular with the other residents of Hancock Park, but was a huge tourist draw.
