Christmas pre- & post-World War II

It's impossible to miss the Marsden home in the neighborhood off Crom Avenue just north of the Manteca Golf Course. It literally outshines all the houses at Greenview Place. The entire length of the house facing the street is dripping with all kinds of Christmas bling – blinking lights, chasing lights, dancing diode lights, a lighted choo-choo train, a red snowman, and Frosty the Snowman sporting a top hat. Proudly occupying a central location among all the outdoor decoration is a lighted American flag handmade by Alan Marsden.
