Cast of Characters

Some people celebrate Christmas by stringing hundreds of lights on their house every year. Others blanket their yard with a dozen holiday inflatables. Minimalists might hang a single wreath on the door.

Then there’s Evans resident Monty “Santa” Clark, who hand-crafts his own outdoor decorations for the holidays. For almost four decades, he has built life-size, Christmas-themed plywood cutouts of Disney characters to display on his front lawn in St. Andrews subdivision off of Evans to Locks Road.

lawn decorations“You have to create love this time of year,” says Clark, who also dresses as jolly old St. Nick. “I want people to come to my house to see what I’ve done – and bring a smile with them.”

Lawn Party
Clark, who works as an electrical construction supervisor, made his first cutout 37 years ago. His mother had made a Santa Claus and a Disney character to put in her yard two years earlier, and he was inspired.

“I loved them, and I wanted to do it, too,” Clark says.

His wife, Lynne, aka his “quality control officer,” was on board, and the tradition grew after their now-grown children, Rebekah, Peyton and Seth, were born. With the addition of four granddaughters and a grandson to the family, their efforts only intensified.

lawn decorationsHowever, he not only made characters for his wife and children. He constructed Goofy in 1990 for his stepfather. After he passed away, however, his mother gave the cutout back to her son.

He also made the eight not-so-tiny reindeer pulling a sleigh for his late father-in-law. Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, which Clark made 25 or 30 years ago, are longtime members of the cutout family as well.

Other characters at the lawn party include Donald Duck and Daisy Duck, along with Huey, Dewey and Louie; Scrooge McDuck; Pluto; Winnie the Pooh with Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore; and Pongo and Perdita, the lovestruck pups of 101 Dalmatians fame.

As Clark’s family has changed, so has the cast of characters.

“Every couple of years or so, I build a new one,” says Clark. “When I had granddaughters, I had to start making Disney princesses.”

In honor of the film, Frozen, he built a vignette of characters including Elsa; Anna; Olaf, the snowman; and Sven, the reindeer.

lawn decorationsAnother set includes the stars of Beauty and the Beast such as Belle; the Beast; Mrs. Potts, the enchanted teapot; and Lumiere, the charismatic candelabra.

“I like to make scenes and groupings of different characters,” Clark says.

Join the Crowd
Clark first picked up a paintbrush before he started making the cutouts. After he was electrocuted on the job in 1981, painting was part of his therapy when he was in and out of the hospital for 11 months as a burn patient.

He uses exterior house paint on the plywood characters so they can withstand the elements. He paints the side, back and bottom of every board. To fill in the details, he uses makeup brushes.

“I paint until the character comes alive and tells me that I’m done,” Clark says. “Once the character looks like it can talk to me, I know I’m finished. It says, ‘Thank you for making me. I’m ready to join the crowd.’”

lawn decorationsWhen his daughters were young and invited friends to their house to play, the girls always wanted to help. Some of the characters that he made with them include Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

“I let the kids paint them, and I told them not to worry about any mistakes because I could paint over them,” says Clark.

It takes him about four days to make a character, but he doesn’t have a particular plan for deciding which one to create. “I just feel it,” he says.

The Clarks start putting the cutouts in their yard the day after Halloween, and it takes them about three weeks to have each one in place.

“It’s a family activity,” Clark says. “They help me paint the characters and set them up in the yard.”

Visiting children can touch the characters and have their pictures taken with them. Although people have tried to buy the cutouts from him, he never sells them.

When Clark retires a character, he gives it to one of hisaughters to put in her yard.

Ho, Ho, Ho
Clark has been dressing as “Santa Clark” for about 10 years, and he knew when the time was right to take on his alter ego.

“My hair and my beard turned snow white,” he says.

As “Santa Clark,” he spends time with special needs children and does a few private parties. He uses the income he earns from the parties to donate to charities or to buy gifts for others.

On a Saturday or Sunday each year, Clark dons his Santa suit and sits in his yard so people can take pictures with him. The day varies, according to his schedule or the weather, but he posts a sign at the entrance to the subdivision to let passersby know they can visit Santa Claus.

“I enjoy bringing a smile to people’s faces,” he says. “People might be having a bad day, but they’re going to smile when they see Santa.”

They can’t help but grin when they see his characters as well.

“I want people to enjoy them, relax and feel good when they leave,” Clark says.

The Spirit of Christmas — Ray Charles

Listen To This

Ray Charles albumAs we dust off the holly jolly boxes of décor and attire, it’s always up for debate on when to flip the soundtrack into seasonal mode. No matter the preference, the perfect album to unpack traditions is the classic Christmas staple, The Spirit of Christmas, by soul legend Ray Charles.

The Spirit of Christmas features a jingle-charm set of traditional holiday songs like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “The Little Drummer Boy” and “Winter Wonderland,” as well as gospel-inspired tracks such as “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing” and “The First Noel.” Ray’s renditions of these classics are nothing short of a transformative light show of cinnamon-infused wonder that creates a rich sonic tapestry of comfort and joy.

From the moment his iconic, fire-cracklin’ vocals hit the air in “What Child is This?” to the album’s eggnog-and-roaring-fire-inspired final note, we are transported into a Currier and Ives masterpiece. He effortlessly stirs magic for the soul with a peppermint stick of awesome through each track, infusing them with his genius and glittered nostalgic goodness, right down to “That Spirit of Christmas,” made forever famous by National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

The soundtracks of the season are always a familiar waft of sugar-plum fun, and The Spirit of Christmas is the perfect sweater of warm tunes to deck the halls of sweet memories and light up the holidays.

May we all take pause like Claus this season with traditions old and new and enjoy a love greater than ourselves.

Gingerbread Cake with Sugared Cranberries & Rosemary


Best Christmas CakeSugared Cranberries and Rosemary:

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 12-15 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided

Gingerbread Cake:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup brewed coffee

Orange Buttercream Frosting:

  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Pinch of salt

Dry cranberries and rosemary on paper towels (you do not want them wet). Place a wire rack on a baking pan to catch drips. In a large skillet, combine water and 1/2 cup sugar and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Boil 1 minute; remove pot from heat and let syrup cool 15 minutes.

Add cranberries and rosemary and quickly toss until fully coated (no more than 30-40 seconds or they’ll start to burst or wilt). Remove with slotted spoon and place on wire rack in a single layer. Let dry at least 1 hour. Place remaining cup of sugar in a large bowl and add cranberries and rosemary. Gently toss to thoroughly coat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two or three 8 or 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper and spray with nonstick baking spray. Beat butter and brown sugar with mixer about 3-4 minutes on high until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing and scraping the bowl down after each addition. Mix in vanilla and molasses.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon. Add to molasses mixture in 3 additions, alternating with coffee. Divide batter between prepared pans and bake 25-30 minutes or until edges pull away from the pan and the centers of the cake bounce back when gently pressed. Let cool in pans 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For frosting, place butter in bowl of stand mixer with whisk attachment. Beat 2-3 minutes until fluffy. Slowly add in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Add vanilla, heavy cream, orange juice and salt. Mix on high 30 more seconds. Spread on cake layers and smooth on outside of cake. Top with cranberries and rosemary to form a wreath. Makes 12 servings.

Speed of Lights

All is bright at Charlotte Motor Speedway during the holiday season.

Normally, racecars zip around the track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. However, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season actually slows down vehicles at the NASCAR site in Concord, North Carolina.

With the 14th edition of Speedway Christmas, cars can travel leisurely through the Charlotte Motor Speedway property (about 13 miles from Charlotte) to see a show featuring more than 5 million lights that are synchronized to popular Christmas tunes on 101.3 FM.

OK, OK, there is a fast lane for drivers that simply can’t help themselves, but most visitors enjoy the route at a slower pace.

“Speedway Christmas has become a can’t-miss holiday tradition for many families across the Southeast,” said Greg Walter, Charlotte Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager. “That’s not something we take lightly. Every year we look for ways to make the show bigger, better and brighter, delivering on our promise to create remarkable events and help visitors make lasting memories.”

Around the Track

Winding their way through the holiday light displays, visitors ride along a 4-mile course that includes the legendary oval, pit road and infield road course.

The theme of this year’s display is Santa’s Beach Party, where St. Nick and his elves enjoy a coastal getaway.

Cars, vans and trucks travel through light displays featuring a forest of Christmas trees and other scenes, as thousands of lights have been added, reconfigured and redesigned this year. A brand new concourse has been added as well.

Tickets are available online or at the gate. While advance purchases are available, they are not required. However, all advance tickets must be purchased for the specific night you plan to go.

Drive-up passes, which are available at the gate, are recommended for those who are unsure when they will attend.

The show is open rain or shine, and Friday and Saturday are the busiest nights.

Pit Stop

Of course, a visit to Speedway Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a pit stop at the infield Christmas Village. Access is free with vehicle admission, and the Christmas Village is open Thursday through Sunday nights.

The Christmas Village features concessions, fire pits for roasting marshmallows, photos with Santa, merchandise vendors and a 360-degree selfie camera in Victory Lane. New attractions include a lighted candy winter wonderland walking trail, two mazes and a rotating assortment of vendors and artisans that changes each week.

The outdoor food court features pizza, hot dogs, corndogs, chicken tenders, turkey legs, BBQ, gyros, pitas, doughnuts, ice cream, funnel cakes, candy and kettle corn. Beverages include soft drinks, coffee, hot chocolate, apple cider, water, beer and wine.

If the holidays simply aren’t complete without your favorite Yuletide films, then you’re in the driver’s seat. The speedway’s 16,000-square-foot HDTV transforms into a drive-in movie screen during the light show, playing holiday hits like Elf, The Grinch, Christmas Vacation and Polar Express Thursday through Sunday nights until Christmas.

However, the Christmas Village and movies will be open nightly December 14 to December 23.

In addition, visitors of all ages can enjoy a new four-lane sledding/tubing hill in front of Charlotte Motor Speedway from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, excluding Christmas Eve, until January 7. Offering unlimited one-day rides, these tickets are $20 per person for light show visitors and $25 per person for others.

Tickets for this activity are sold at the booth beside the tubing hill in the CMS Fan Zone. They are not available online or at Speedway Christmas ticket booths.

Snowland and Sea Life

While they’re in the area, visitors can add other attractions to their Christmas list. Great Wolf Lodge is home to Snowland, an annual holiday celebration with an 80,000-square-foot indoor water park that is kept at 84 degrees. Other activities include Snowflake Story Time, Snowland Yoga Tails, arts and crafts, games, visits with Santa and snow flurries in the lobby.

Holiday shoppers can visit Concord Mills, which is home to more than 200 stores, restaurants and entertainment options. They include Lionel Retail Store, the only store directly owned by the 119-year-old train maker; mini golf; go karts and other outdoor fun at The Speedpark; and Sea Life Aquarium.

From Friday, December 1 through Monday, January 1, the interactive aquarium will feature the Sea of Lights, an underwater holiday experience with thousands of holiday lights and more than 30 decorated Christmas trees. The aquarium also includes a 180-degree ocean tunnel where tropical sharks and graceful rays glide overhead.

Merry Mischief!

In The Home

From whimsical elves to life-size Santas, this Evans house is all decked out for the holidays.

Photography by Sally Kolar

At the Evans home of Bridget Flynn and Jack Edwards, every room is brimming with Christmas cheer.

“She loves decorating for Christmas. It’s her passion,” says Jack. “She invites friends over to see everything. She puts so much into it that people need to see it.”

Ever-Growing Collection

Bridget started collecting Christmas décor about 15 years ago.

“It grows more and more every year,” she says. “I started with the RAZ elves I have in the Christmas tree in the living room, and it just escalated from there. When I first saw the elves, I fell in love with them. I love their faces and their expressions.”

She starts decorating in mid-October, and she works as hard as any elf in Santa’s workshop to create holiday magic in their home.

Although she has a thing for elves, Bridget also has certain brands that she likes including Mark Roberts, Katherine’s Collection, MacKenzie-Childs, Regency International and Karen Didion. She always keeps an eye out for specific pieces that she wants to add to her collections.

“If it’s not available, I will search until I find it,” Bridget says. “I start looking early to see what’s coming out for the year. I shop for Christmas all year long. When we go to the mountains, I hit all the Christmas stores.”

Last year the newest addition to the décor was a large nativity scene that Jack found at a local department store. He had planned to give it to Bridget as a Christmas gift, but the sales associate convinced him to buy it after the holiday when it would be half price.

He got enough figures in 2021 to start it, and others have given her pieces for the collection as well. The nativity scene is the first thing the couple sees when they enter the house from the garage.

“I don’t get excited about a lot of things, but I really enjoy the nativity scene,” says Jack, the son of a Methodist minister.

The Fun Room

The lower level décor also reflects Jack’s lifelong fondness for Snoopy, where the “Peanuts” character is the star of the holiday decorations.

Resting on a blanket of “snow,” a Christmas vignette in the garage features Snoopy, Woodstock, a doghouse with snow and colored lights on the roof, and a Christmas tree.

In the sitting room, stuffed Snoopys and other ornaments hang from a tree. One of Bridget’s friends crocheted the red and white skirt under the tree as well as an identical skirt beneath the dining room tree.

The basement also includes statues of Snoopy, the Grinch, an elf and Mickey Mouse in the sitting room.

On the final night of a visit to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Bridget “earned” the right to purchase the Mickey Mouse statue after she beat Jack in a game of pool.

“I said if I won the last game, I was going to get Mickey Mouse,” she says. “The ball did exactly what I said it was going to do. We stopped on the way home to get Mickey.”

The basement décor also features a snowman that Bridget made out of fishbowls and filled with Mickey Mouse Christmas decorations. Other decorations include Ralphie, clad in his pink bunny suit, of A Christmas Story fame and a 1957 turquoise Chevy Bel Air convertible with Elvis behind the wheel and Barbie riding shotgun.

“The basement is my fun room,” says Bridget.

Gingerbread & Peppermint

Bridget loves gingerbread houses, so naturally, she centers the kitchen décor around food.

The kitchen table includes a gingerbread house centerpiece with a gingerbread tree on either side, and round red and white placements that resemble peppermint candies. A gingerbread wreath hangs on the door from the basement.

A RAZ elf sits on the secretary in the kitchen, while another elf with a pretzel in his hand lounges on the counter.

“I buy little things to put in their hands,” says Bridget. “I can change it each year.”

The first gingerbread house that Bridget ever bought rests behind the cooktop. Other kitchen decorations include a gingerbread train, block letters spelling out the word “Merry,” reindeer with candy cane antlers and peppermints on their backs, a red boot and a bow made of MacKenzie-Childs ribbon on the tree.

A Mark Roberts elf with a sweets shop sits on the island, where a cake stand is covered with individually wrapped Little Debbie Christmas cakes that Bridget shares with guests.

The gingerbread theme continues into the dining room, where the table also features a gingerbread house centerpiece. A gingerbread man and woman with flashing lights sit atop the china cabinet.

“I use a lot of whimsical decorations,” says Bridget.

While the sideboard includes red and green balls and a pair of nutcrackers, the Christmas tree is filled with painted ornaments that pop with glitter and gold.

Three hot air balloons with a Mark Roberts elf inside dangle from the entryway between the dining room and living room.

Bridget also keeps a container filled with Christmas soaps in the half bath. Since Christmas is for sharing, she gives a soap to their guests before they leave.

Always Room for Elves

In the living room, RAZ elves in the tree are accompanied by poinsettia ornaments as well as red, green and white balls. Christmas picks spray out from the treetop, and lighted red and green decorative presents sit beneath the tree.

A life-size Santa sits in a chair in the corner. On the chest, a Mark Roberts elf occupies an ornate Katherine’s Collection chair and rhinestone trees top a pair of drums.

A rocking horse and giant pillar candles on candlesticks add to the Christmas cheer, and of course, there’s always room for more elves. Another Mark Roberts elf sits by the grandfather clock, which is one of 100 clocks that was made to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Dollywood, and a RAZ elf hangs on the clock.

Stifling a yawn, a sleepy Mark Roberts elf reclines in a chair while holding a sign that reads “free kisses.”

However, Bridget has a better idea. “I wish the elves would learn how to clean,” she says.

A wreath decorates the wood-burning stove, which belonged to Jack’s parents, on the fireplace hearth. A Noel banner hangs from the mantel, where flocked greenery, another Mark Roberts elf and two reindeer rest on top.

“We keep the lights low at night so the Christmas lights stand out,” says Bridget.

Four Victorian carolers line the serpentine chest in the foyer, and two black lantern streetlights stand on either side. Bridget’s sister makes all of the bows for her.

Accompanied by two more lanterns, a life-size nutcracker stands guard at the end of the hall. Even the doorknobs throughout the house are decorated with festive tassels, jingle bells and elves.

Snug in Their Beds

The three bedrooms get into the Christmas spirit as well.

A Santa in a chair recites “The Night Before Christmas” in the master bedroom, where more carolers and candles stand on the dresser.

“I use artificial LED candles since I have so many of them,” Bridget says.

To honor Jack’s family, a small tree on the dresser is decorated with White House and Masters Tournament ornaments. His brother, who lives in Virginia, sends him a White House ornament every year, and their grandfather, who helped build Augusta National Golf Club, was the first golf course superintendent at the property.

A Katherine’s Collection fairy sits daintily in the center of the bed, and a Santa, two trees and a musical snow globe occupy a bedside table.

“I always find a place for something, but I don’t put everything out every single year,” Bridget says.

In the “peacock” bedroom, the tree is decorated with peacocks and peacock feathers, gold and teal balls, gold tassels and teal poinsettias. A peacock sits on a glass-topped table at the foot of the bed, and elves dressed in teal rest on the bedside tables next to the four-poster bed. A wreath made of peacock feathers hangs on the door.

The chest of drawers features a teal-outfitted Mark Roberts elf, a gold and teal runner, a glass bowl filled with gold and teal balls, and a pair of white pillar candles wrapped in a peacock motif.

The “animal print” bedroom includes a mannequin Christmas tree with a red bodice and a red sash tied in a bow at the waist. A red skirt with leopard-print trim surrounds the base of the tree.

A leopard-print runner stretches across the dresser, and gold and red ribbon are tied around a lamp. A Katherine’s Collection gnome and a Mark Roberts elf are part of the décor as well.

Even though Bridget, who would love to open a Christmas shop when she retires, starts decorating early in the season, she never really finishes. “I will mess with everything until the day I take it down,” she says.

Jack doesn’t argue. “When I leave,” he says, “it doesn’t mean the decorations will look the same when I get home.”
