Webergs’ Wonka scene adds whimsy to holidays

'Tis the season for decorations. Flossmoor neighborhoods are glowing. There are reindeer, sleighs, Santas and elves, big and small, adding brightness and cheer to the village.

Andy and Lilly Weberg have created an elaborate, animated scene based on the characters and scenes from the 1971 film, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," starring the late Gene Wilder. The film was based on the book, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," by Roald Dahl. 

Andy Weberg acknowledges that Wonka is not universally acknowledged to be a Christmas . . .
