Near my office is a service station that goes all out with decorating for holidays, and it’s all inflatables. For Halloween it was surrounded by animated ghosts, spiders and black cats. Come Thanksgiving, it was pilgrims and turkeys waving at passing motorists. Now for Christmas they have outdone themselves. Every inch of ground around their parking lot is filled with inflated Santas on motorcycles, elves on trains, and teddy bears and Tigger and anything else they could cram in, all moving or waving somehow.
But even considering all of that, this one made me do a double take:
Yes, a Christmas Noah’s Ark. Really. Those middle doors open and close, and the lions pop in and out. Because nothing brightens your holidays like a reminder that you are following a god who once killed everything on the planet, except for an arbitrarily selected few.
