You know it's Christmas in Lufkin, Texas...

...when Oil Pump Rudolf starts his annual celebration!

Lufkin's Rudolf is one of those childhood memories I'll always cherish. He's been pumping every Christmas for 40 years, lifting his antlers 45 feet into the air. When I was young, Rudolf was assembled about 3 blocks from my house, on Lufkin Industries property. Now he greets people from the Lufkin Mall parking lot, guiding the locals and travelers as they make their way around the loop.
