Has Dairyville vanished, or has it just passed its time? I have other fond memories of Christmas as a child.

I remember how we'd go out to Forest Grove and the McCready estate -- as in the McCready Lumber Yards -- was decorated in much the same manner as Dairyville. People would walk around the estate grounds and the kids would run in and out of the miniature houses and shops. The McCready Estate Christmas is long gone.

I remember driving around and visiting several streets that were highly decorated. One street even managed to get itself designated Christmas Lane each season. Now, Peacock Lane is all that's left, and I hear there are even a couple of homeowners on that street who are balking at fancy lighting.

Things change.

There was, last I knew, a man in St Johns who decorated his home and adjoining lot beautifully every year, he and his late wife were Santa ad Mrs Claus, and were out front nightly. One block east of Wall St, and I used to go N Fessenden, to the end of the park, turn left, and one block up, and one over. Ive a horrendous sense of direction.
