They turned out to be a perfect example of "Made poorly in China" because they are now (after 2 weeks) about 25% burned out - and these are LEDs (LEDs don't burn out).

And one night there was a halo all around the moon. Although it was brighter in real life, here you can just see the bottom part of the halo:
And the little town of Jackson Hole put up some decorations too. In fact they went all out with ice sculptures. There were 2 semi trailers full of ice that unloaded into the center of town:
The ice was carved into Cartoon Characters:
An ice bowling alley and an ice castle:
The backside of the ice castle is a long ice slide:
There is also a snow cave:

And, my Christmas present is a drivers license. I went through a lot of administrative paperwork and organizing and a lot of studying for the test to earn this and it arrived in the mail Christmas eve. Now when we return in the spring I'll be able to drive a motorbike here (China is one of the few countries in the world where an international drivers license is not accepted). Note the photo-shopped photo of me, looking 10 years younger - a typical practice here in passport photo-booths:
Merry Christmas to you all, and a Happy new year.
