Okay, first of all, when I went to open this topic to add my update, I will mention that the system said it has had 666 views. I am saying the Our Father as I write this.
Secondly, my desk and computer are in the front room where the Christmas tree and villages etc. are all set up. We have one large window facing the street and sidewalk.
It's dark out, overcast and a little rainy today. Since it's so dreary, I decided to turn the lights on early. I'm sitting at the computer working on a project, and I notice a jogger outside passing by. He stops. He turns and stares intently through our front window.
At first, I'm thinking he's appreciating our decorations, but he just stands there for a minute with this...look on his face. I can't really describe it. I'm starting to feel a little...uncomfortable. He's just standing there, staring. Not with a look of joy or wonder at my husband's lovely decorations...but he looks a little...scared.
He finally runs off. Quickly.
Later on, I decide to go outside to admire the pretty lights.
And then I notice something.
On the mantle over the fireplace, which is across the room and faces the big front window, my husband placed one of those electric candle sets with three "candles". They have bright orangey-red bulbs. Very pretty.
Only, when I go outside, I notice one of the three bulbs is burned out, leaving two. Which looks like a pair of demon eyes hovering somewhere behind the pretty Christmas tree. Here's what it looks like from outside:
I don't mind being freaked out by the Christmas decorations (too much) as I'm getting used to it - but I would hate for our neighbors to be traumatized. Goodness knows, I wouldn't want to be "demon-eyes-ed" in the neighborhood. (Get it?!)
Don't worry. I have since removed the "candle" set until a replacement bulb is purchased.
