You older siblings probably don't remember the big star, but I remember helping Dad put that thing up for many years, then storing it the garage. One year he told me he he was tired of putting it up & taking it down every year, so he just gave it to the church. The next year "Father Carp" called him about three weeks before Christmas & told him it was time to put the star up again. Guess he didn't accomplish what he wanted.

I'm sure all of us have a few stories to tell about the lights. Maybe we can tell some if we get together.
