Remember the days when you were little and you were thrilled when you saw a big Santa Claus on a neighbor’s roof? In those days, animated Christmas decorations were simple, yet they still captured the magic of the holidays. You can still capture that magic in today’s animated holiday decorations, but they’re livelier, brighter and built to last for many Christmas celebrations. These delightful decorations can turn any yard and any home into a place of wonder and awe. You can thrill your own family and anyone passing in front of your home by setting up an animated display.
The best animated Christmas decorations are popular and sell quickly and early in the season, so you’ll want to start shopping early for the best selection. Once the big ticket items sell out like that, most retailers don’t restock. Even online stores run out of Christmas decorations if they’re a hot item, so go ahead and order yours as soon as possible.
What kinds of animated decorations are available? You can find favorite childhood characters riding in sleds, on trains or waving as a standalone figure. There are animated Santas, angels, ice skating penguins and nutcrackers marching all in a row. You can find also groups of reindeer or large teddy bears just waiting to come to life. But one of the most popular choices for animated yard decorations are the large snow globes filled with various scenes. In some snow globes, you’ll find multi-colored presents and animated figures spinning in circles. Some have Disney characters standing beneath falling snow.
But with animated Christmas decorations, you don’t have to start big. You can start small and build your collection. Many people assume that it takes more time to set up animated Christmas decorations than putting up regular yard ornaments, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Animated decorations are as easy and sometimes even easier than setting up any other kind of display. Many of these decorations can also be adapted to synchronized music displays. There’s a good reason animated Christmas decorations routinely outsell other decorations – the motion and the magic together make the displays truly memorable.
