Every year for the past few, the Bailey family lights up their home at 9872 Burton Drive with a virtual feast of choreographed Christmas lights and holiday music -- and this year there will be extra inspiration in the performance.
Brian and Anne Bailey have become a part of the holiday tradition with their neighbors, as people in the area trek to the home to see the display and take pictures. This year, visitors are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items, as well as letters to Santa, in the large mail receptacle in the front of the home. The food items will be donated to the Emergency Assistance Center, a local food bank. For the letters to Santa, people are encouraged to provide a return address so that the writer can receive a response from Santa. Santa will not make any commitments on presents. The receptacle is a large green mailbox with red candy canes and a big red bow on the tree lawn next to the driveway.
