You knew it was inevitable: After posting pictures of Halloween masks, costumes and decor available for sale, was there any doubt I would be posting pics of Christmas stuff?
Well, I had some doubts. There’s not as much outrageous Christmas stuff out there — no Navidad equivalents of Zombie Babies, for example — so there might not be enough material for weeks and weeks of posts.
So we’ll see where this takes us.
Since “A Charlie Brown Christmas” debuted in 1965, the “Peanuts” creations of Charles M. Schulz have been forever linked to the holiday for many of us. A few years ago, some canny company began marketing versions of the Charlie Brown pathetic Christmas tree.
So seeing Charlie and Snoopy and pals “decking them halls” on the lawn seems perfectly appropriate.
If you’d like to make a silent statement, there’s good ol’ Snoopy alone. And he’s fuzzy!
I’m at a loss to explain the Santa Pig. Maybe some clued-in reader will enlighten me.
In the spirit of the season, how about a couple of pretty Christmas pics? These are of the big tree in the middle of the Von Maur department store at Castleton Square Mall on the north side of Indianapolis.
