Have you noticed that holiday decorations are mixed up like a salad? There were the orange carrots of Halloween hanging next to the tomatoes of Christmas. Both were on top the store manager’s hopes for lots of green lettuce (money/sales). The poor turkey, Pilgrims and Indians of Thanksgiving didn’t make the invitation list this year.
I was in Wal-Mart the other day and noticed they had set up some Christmas trees already. These were very tall skinny trees. To be honest, I’ve never seen any that size before. They were not heavily decorated.
As I was pushing my cart past one, I noticed a young boy, probably about four who was supposed to be following his father to the cashier. Instead he was transfixed by that Christmas tree. He kept saying, “Would you look at that!”
