NUTLEY, NJ - Celebrating another Christmas classic golden milestone, Gordon and Darlene Smith of Nutley, decorate their Shepard Place home with vinyl graphics. A mural of the "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" celebrating 50 years ornaments the house, with who else, but the Grinch perched on top the roof was a part of their celebration in 2016.

This was the third year the Smiths honored the holiday classics with images on the front of their home.

In 2015, the family paid tribute to “Charlie Brown Christmas” and in 2014 they paid homage to everybody’s favorite shiny-nosed four legged friend, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
