Back in May I touched on unique ways to commemorate special occasions, specifically citing a house near ours that has a one-of-a-kind method of seasonal decorating: dressing up llamas. In May, the featured occasion was Mothers' Day, for which the llamas opted to don male and female outfits, complete with a baby in a sling (for her) and a top hat and handlebar moustache (for him). Here's a snapshot of the scene for anyone who missed it.

Well, my favorite furry friends are back, celebrating the World Cup no less. Centered in the middle of this home's picture window is this current sight:

One of the best parts of this funky llama art is the unpredictable nature in which the owners select the featured holidays. Alex and I were dying for the 4th of July to come, only to be crushed when no llamas were sighted. But surprise, surprise. It was the Women's World Cup tournament of all things that brought the llamas out onto their fashion runway in patriotic and sporty garb. Love it.

In my book, this is one of the most memorable and unique forms of holiday decorating I've come across. Does anyone have something that tops dressed up llamas in the front window? Any guesses as to the next holiday the llamas will celebrate? Your guess is as good as ours, but we'll be sure to keep you posted on any sightings in the near future. When is arbor day anyway?

I absolutely love these llamas. I do hope you'll continue to alert us to all wardrobe changes.
Of course! (And wardrobe malfunctions as well.) ;-)
