Besides admiring their beauty, big holiday lights displays at peoples homes always set me wondering about the elves behind them. But to all who know about Kevin Meehan's holiday lights display at his farm home in Millis, there is less mystery surrounding this attraction.

MILLIS -- The Meehan family's winter wonderland opened without a hitch Thanksgiving night, as police yesterday reported there were no traffic complaints. With a new traffic plan in place this year, police said traffic has not been a problem so far. "Everything went well" said Millis Police dispatcher Karen Roberts last night. "There were no complaints." Working with neighbors and the Millis and Medway police departments, Kevin Meehan established the new traffic pattern to make sure a mess of cars don't spoil the holiday season. The entire eastbound side of the road will remain open for local traffic and emergency vehicles. Only cars traveling westbound on Causeway Street will be allowed to turn right into the Meehan's driveway, and all exiting traffic will have to turn right, toward Medway, after viewing the display. More complete directions can be found at www.milliswonderland.com. Starting at 4:30 on Thanksgiving day, about 70 or 80 cars lined up outside Meehan's home, vying to be the first to see this year's display at the 6 p.m. opening. The crowd was roughly the same size last night, said Holliston resident Debbie Wilson, who has visited the winter wonderland both nights. An annual tradition for Wilson, she came for an early visit last year after the traffic kept her away last year. "Last year I had no idea why there was so much traffic. It was backed up all the way down to the VFW in Medway," she said. "But then I saw it ... It's so much bigger, so much better. "So far the cars have kept to the Millis side of Causeway Street, with just a handful attempting to skirt the new traffic rules. But the real test, Meehan said, will come soon."We really expect the busiest nights will start next weekend," he said. "Next Friday and Saturday will be the busiest nights."In addition to the dozens of visitors on Thanksgiving day, Meehan said news crews from Channel 5 and Channel 7 did live broadcasts from his winter village. Because the family started assembling the display in October, Meehan said, there was time to add a lot of detail to each of the 42 booths on display this year. As people drive down the long driveway, they can look into the numerous decorated booths and listen to the Christmas music.
