    Theresa Monro peers from inside her 2012 Nissan Leaf that is decorated for the season at the charging station at the Historic County Building parking lot.

Theresa Monro is a light parade all by herself as she drives her 2012 Nissan Leaf around town. Theresa has more than 2,000 LED holiday lights (she said she bought out the Ace Hardware stock) fastened with painters tape in a way that all the doors and hatch operates normally. The lights are powered by an onboard inverter and Theresa said you just need to watch that the lights don’t go over the rated voltage.

“It just makes you feel joyous,” she said, noting that the car was in the Lights on Rice holiday parade, and would have been in the Waimea Lighted Parade except the people called too late and she didn’t have enough of a charge in the car.

Kudos to Sherri Holcomb of the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club for coordinating the Friday craft fair benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network. Karin Panui of Mailelani’s said Edwin Vea was helping her for most of the day before leaving to prepare for the Beach House Restaurant craft fair Saturday on the lawn of the oceanfront restaurant.

Mahalo to Lenore and Bob Klass for the fancy cookies prepared in the kitchen of a Pillsbury Baking Contest winner! Cookies are a part of Christmas, and mahalo to Secret Santa for the UH rainbow!
