Merry Christmas from Ace Jackalope
Ace Jackalope and his entourage wish you a merry Christmas, filled with whatever brings you peace, stability and joy.
The automated nativity above is part of a display at Mike Babick's house in Prairie Village, Kansas, near Kansas City.
Cut-out figures inhabit the roof.
Babick collects and restores old Christmas automations.
A view into the garage reveals Santa's workshop.
Almost all of these figures are automated.
A canine ice cream vendor watches another dog dance.
Babick tells me how he'd like to decapitate Ace and motorize him. Ace had no comment.
A few days ago, we paid a visit to Lemon Park in Pratt, Kansas.
Fake hoofprints complement lighted moose and deer.
In some small way, be you adult or child, may you experience wonder today.
