The Christmas Lights Monster

Visit my Flickr page to see outtakes from my 2008 Christmas card. The actual card that was mailed out is shown above.

This year’s card features the little known Christmas Lights Monster. He’s the one that makes it impossible for you to straighten out your Christmas lights when they are tangled up in twisted up knots (did I just pull that line from The Grinch?). It’s quite rare to see this creature in person. He’s amongst the ranks of Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Chupacabra. So it’s quite a treat to see an actual photograph of him doing his work.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! And if you see the Christmas Lights Monster, say, “hello there” and maybe he won’t tangle up your lights too much after Christmas. I hear he likes peppermint hot chocolate.

Your Christmas Lights Monster card arrived “on time” and is proudly displayed on the refrigerator with one of your other cards. Your family card is on the front door with all of the other “traditional” cards 😉 Happy holidays, Erik!

I interpreted the design as if the strings of christmas lights were dragging the monster down into their bowels. To me, it looks as if the monster is trying to escape and the lights won’t let go. Almost like a quicksand type of scenario except that the lights are more like vines or something.

Your explanation is more whimsical and amusing than my original interpretation though. Mine is rather ominous and certainly not cheery or fun (as a Christmas card should be).
