John and Pat Hendel, on Ellis Avenue in Maplewood, have again lit their house for Christmas, something they’ve done for about the past two dozen years. Monday night they couldn’t say exactly how many it’s been.
John said it takes him about two weeks to put it all up. When it’s not December the decorations are in their garage, attic and various other storage spots in the house.
The house is easily seen, to the southwest, from the intersection of Manchester and Big Bend.
