House of Christmas® David™s: A Two-Year Analysis
There’s something in the air. ’Tis the magic season wee Angelenos, boys and girls alike, wait for all year. Finally the morning arrives. After a fitful sleep they rise extra early, fresh-faced and twinkly-eyed. They grab a cup of joe and a smoke, get strapped into their carseats and are unceremoniously hauled by mom and dad over to Hancock Park to stare in amazement at the House of Christmas® David™s.
Let us take a few moments to side-by-side the changes in the annual decorum, then…
- While last year’s Santa and Mrs. Claus appear to be absent in the foreground, 2007 boasts several all-new bow-clad Santas at roof’s edge, deftly covering the gilded lions beneath
- The rooftop-crowning, looming “FHP” initials were prominent in 2006. Their cryptic meaning was downplayed as “Feed His People” in wee blocked red lettering, though scholars maintain the more apt and decidedly non-holiday “F*ck Hancock Park” current ran far deeper. Whatever your belief of their meaning, “FHP” is conspicuously absent this go-round.
- For reasons unknown the numeral “6” at the end of “2006” has now been changed to a “7”. Can anybody help me out here?
