  • Wall to wall bears

    Every side and every window of the Big Bear house is covered wall to wall with animated Bear decorations. Additionally Christmas music is piped out non-stop from every side of the house.

    Here's a montage of the various bears in the Big Bear house. The one on the lower left is the permanent year-long fixture, the Big Bear himself. You're supposed to rub his nose for good luck.
