Christmas parades in early December and front yard displays for the whole month, are popular traditions in North America, and Jeep owners like to get their vehicles involved.

Vaughn Becker and his 1958 CJ-3B deliver Santa to the Town Hall in Taroom, Queensland, Australia for "Carols by Candlelight and Santa in the Park" in 2014. Vaughn says, "We usually have the family fun evening in the Park but in 2014 due to very heavy, dark clouds overhead it was decided to move to the Town Hall, which proved to be a good move!"
Thanks to Caroline Bunker for the photo.
