This photograph, of Santa’s workshop and other Christmas shopping decorations, was taken at a shopping mall today. The song “Let It Snow” was playing on the loudspeaker, as people enjoyed sunny weather in the 60s outside. Similar early displays are going up, weeks ahead of schedule, all across the USA.
I don’t think even the most clueless right wing talk show host could claim a War On Christmas this year. The big stores have hooked their Christmas reindeer into their harnesses, and are riding them hard and long to find whatever small scraps of holiday shopping they can.
