It's Christmas time in North Riverside Illinois. December 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Christmas time 2013, was a colorful and special time in the greater Chicagoland area.
A popular trend in recent years, are the use of these giant inflatable outdoor holiday decorations on front lawns, like these examples I photographed in west suburban North Riverside Illinois.
They fold away for easy storage, and require the use of an air compressor to bring them to life during the holidays.
