View all the Ream holiday folk art display pieces on The Icon

One of the many Ream pieces

Perhaps the weather outside is frightful, or if you plan to be home for Christmas, but only in your dreams, If so, The Icon offers you an armchair view of the Harry and Dorothy Ream holiday folk art display.

Forty color photos of the display may be viewed in The Icon photo gallery.

For newcomers to the community, the display was started in 1937 when electricity first came to rural Jenera. Dorothy and Harrry started the display in their rural Jenera yard with one scene. Then, piece-by-piece, year-by-year, the display grew and grew.

When Dorothy died the display was given to the community of Bluffton. That was 26 years ago. The display has been shown in the Bluffton Presbyterian Church lawn ever since and thus, the Bluffton Blaze of Lights was born.

Bluffton Icon intern, Angela Green, a journalism student from Bowling Green State University, took the photos and posted them.
