Spreading Christmas cheer across county

He doesn’t bring presents like Santa Claus, but a Difficult resident’s goal is the same as the “jolly old man” from the North Pole—spreading Christmas cheer.

And it may still be November, but Thomas Taylor is already out and about spreading Christmas joy in an unusual way.

When Taylor cranks up his blue Dodge Caravan, travels down his home’s driveway turning onto Little Salt Lick Creek Road, the fun begins. 

The deep blue minivan is precisely outlined with  silver garland and approximately one thousand Christmas lights.

So whether its daytime or the dead of night, Taylor is a one vehicle Christmas parade.

Topping off the decorative holiday display is a Christmas tree tightly secured to the roof of the minivan.

“This is something, I have fun with,” said Taylor, after briefly pausing for photos in the Carthage Walmart parking lot Tuesday afternoon. “You ought to see it at night.”
