The Joplin homeowner showcases a one-of-a-kind Christmas Lights

JOPLIN, Mo. — A Joplin resident who happens to be a big fan of the holiday season took a different approach to decorating for the holiday.

You’ll find a lot of Christmas decorations in Dustin Molinaro’s front yard, but they’re a bit older than you might be used to. If you go to his house you will find more than 200 blow mold style Christmas decorations.

His collection started over 20 years ago when his grandparents passed on some of their vintage Christmas decorations. Since then, Molinaro has been scouring flea markets, markets, eBay and Facebook Marketplace, where he finds the old-fashioned decorations.

This year, Molinaro started putting up the unique Christmas figures just after Halloween and spent the entire month of November placing them in just the right place.

“It’s kind of my Christmas tradition at this point. I got my first ones when I was eight years old, every time I saw them in someone’s garden it just brought a smile to my face because that’s what I grew up with. so it’s really my family tradition,” said Dustin Molinaro.

Molinaro says his neighbors love the Christmas decorations. Because of the exhibit, traffic near his home (near West 16th Street and Murphy Avenue in Joplin) increases each night as drivers slowly pull by to catch a glimpse of the special Christmas collection.
