Elephants and a Christmas nutcracker

I’ve posted this house previously. I like their elephants. Now they have added a nutcracker, Christmas wreath and a little horse and carriage. As I search through my old posts I see that someone at this house decorates for the seasons. How fun!

You can see we don’t have any snow. And I didn’t realize how green our grass still is until I looked at this photo.

Here is what I wrote on on Oct. 28:

I first posted a photo of this Mansion with the elephants in Aug. of 2010. At that time I wrote:

These elephants welcome visitors to this Congdon home on East Third Street. Elephants are symbols of prosperity, wealth, good luck, strength and power. It also represents perseverance, in that it is an extremely hard working animal. Some worship the elephant so much as to make it their national symbol, such as Thailand. Elephants are also seen as symbols of wisdom and dignity, because of their incredible intelligence and very long life span. In Christian symbolism  the elephant is an icon of temperance, patience, and chastity.

Of course in the United State they are associated with the Republican Party.
