Old St. Nick, Bigger Than Life
by Ron Goheen (rongo) 
Kodak P850
Fort Wayne, Indiana
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
This is part of a restored holiday lighting display that dates back to 1940 when it delighted children of all ages on the side of the Wolf and Dessauer department store in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. The full Santa and sleigh pulled by 8 not-so-tiny reindeer is 155 feet long and uses over 24,000 bulbs. I'm still awestruck by the sight some 60 years after viewing it as a small child.
