Usually around this time of year, the house at 7611 Falmouth is hard to miss. Even during the day, the dozens of figurines and lights that make up Mike Babick’s nationally known Christmas display stick out from his house with bright colors.
But this year is different.
Permanent floodlights installed to illuminate the animated figures on his roof sit pointed at nothing. There is no hay spread on the grass to prevent damage to the yard. When night comes, the street is quiet. 7611 Falmouth Street is mostly dark.
