Canaan man creates giant Christmas display for all to enjoy

By Aislinn Sarnacki, BDN Staff

Elmer Holmes of Canaan has been expanding his outdoor Christmas display since 2002, when the display started with just one inflatable character, a bear dressed as Santa Claus. For the holiday season of 2017, it took him six days to set up the display, which now consists of more than 70 inflatable characters, just as many hard plastic figures, and hundreds of lights strung between the trees in front of his house. On a sign he placed by the road, he invites people to stop in and walk a path through the display for free.
