Suicidal Snowflakes

Just because I have a short attention span doesn\’t mean I…

Christmas decorations from hell

Ok.  The first six foot tall blow-up snowman I saw three or four years ago was kind of cool.  It was different, it was lit up, it was an interesting decoration.  But now people have front lawns full of them–blow up santas, blow up reindeer.

Then last year it somehow managed to get worse–blow up snow globes with blow up snowmen inside with fake snow flying around the rubber ball.

Somehow, it managed to get worse.  These people have the blow up globe with santa and a chimney on their front porch…. but that’s not the disturbing part. Oh no, it gets worse.

And I’m not talking about the 14 other blow-up or light-up things on their porch.  I’m talking about on the roof of the porch.  The blow up carousel inside the blow up globe that actually moved.  But thats not the disturbing part. Oh wait, there’s more… it’s the blow up trains going around on a little track in the oposite direction around the moving carousel  inside the blow up globe.

Oh.

My.

God.

What sort of tackiness is the neighbrhood coming to?  Everyone’s trying to outdo the guy next door, and th people with the eighteen wire light-up deer in their yard are hard to beat (this is in addition to their decorated tree, the huge light-up snow flakes in another tree, window decorations, light-up nativity, santa track lighting, light-up santa, light-up candy canes… you name it these people have it.  But at least it’s marginally tasteful.  It’s not that… globe. That… THING. Oy Vey.
