Indiana Home Displays Hundreds of Minions For Christmas
For almost half a decade the minions have been a staple in this Indiana town at Christmastime bringing thousands of visitors to gawk in amazement.
POPULAR LITTLE CHARACTERS
Angel here and I remember when Despicable Me first hit the movie screen. Parker and Braden were just little boys. They were obsessed and had to have minion everything. Now, older they still laugh when they see those cute little yellow tic tac looking characters. A man in New Albany, Indiana, apparently loves them too. So much so that five years ago he covered his entire yard with them for Christmas.
HOW IT GOT STARTED
According to multiple news sources, the tradition got started when Michael Pourteau's son and a neighbor decided to have a friendly little decorating competition. He started in 2017 with around 70 characters and now years later there are hundreds. This has become a holiday staple and is expected by those who live in the town and also people who drive to see the display.
