We took the boys to the Holiday Parade this weekend.
It was hard to get in the holiday spirit, because it was a balmy 60 degrees outside.
I think some of the parade entrants were also confused about which holiday they were celebrating. Like this angry mob that hung Elmo in effigy and marched him through the streets.
Maybe it was a statement about de-funding PBS?
Even more disturbing than Elmo was the SUV with three female heads on the roof.
I didn’t know serial killers were allowed to march in parades.
That was followed up by a funeral home driving an antique hearse down the street. I was too befuddled to snap a photo. By then I was wondering if we’d breached the time/space continuum and traveled back to October 31st.
Thank goodness for the giant turkey and other balloons to remind me that were at a family (Thanksgiving and Christmas) Holiday Parade.
Except the balloons weren’t floating. Instead they were inflated with regular old air, mounted on makeshift wagons and pulled through the street, because of the helium shortage.
Do you understand the seriousness of this people? A helium shortage. Thousands of children may go without balloons on their birthdays. How was this not an issue in the presidential campaign? It’s obviously a cover-up attempt by the U.S. government.
Thank goodness for Santa and Mrs. Claus. They brought some much needed Christmas cheer with them.
I think I’ll ask Santa for a tank of helium this year. Prices should go through the roof!
