I am not sure how old these are - maybe from the 50's. I was going to go and check sometime later in the week. I just love these decorations that hang from the street lights in a nearby town of like 100 people. They also have a sleigh and reindeer with santa hanging across the main road. Our town also had them until they changed to the more modern lighted snowflakes below.
