WITH Christmas fast approaching, festive season fan Carey Dickason has been busy entertaining her neighbors with the creative decorations outside her Kalgan home.
Ms Dickason retired to Albany 10 years ago after previously living in Australind.
“I used to go for a walk every morning through my neighbourhood, and I especially loved it at Christmas time when everyone started decorating their homes,” she said.
“There was one house where the owner put a Santa out the front, and every day he had been moved and positioned to make a scene. I always got a kick out of seeing it.”
After a few years living in Albany, Ms Dickason spotted a Santa suit at the shops and decided she could “give it a go”.
From December 1 to Christmas day Ms Dickason brings out Father Christmas or FC for short, as well as his two elves Elfie and Edward Elf to get up to some mischief in her front yard.
“I really get a kick out of doing it and the neighbours do too,” she said.
“I get up every morning and get them set up doing something silly.
“Ideas just sort of happen, sometimes I have no clue what to do and it’s like FC, Elfie and Edward get a mind of their own.”
Ms Dickason posts her newest creations on her Facebook page ‘FC, Elfie and Edward Elf’ to share with her friends and Albany locals.
“Sometimes I get kids knocking on my front door with suggestions for the next day,” she said.
“I just really enjoy doing this each Christmas; people get a kick out of it.”
