Christmas and all that

Christmas season brought many different events, including the local Christmas Parade, St Nicholas day at the parish, Parish Christmas dinner, Advent Wreath activity night, and Children’s Christmas party among others. The majority of these involved candy being thrown to (or at) the children. We had a sizable box full of varying US lollies. After we filtered out the ones no one liked, we still had a huge stash of sugar based items.
Also at the Christmas Parade were lots of floats put on by local businesses, churches and community groups. One of the clever floats was a collection of tricycles joined together, with all the riders wearing check shirts and baseball caps, titled, “Hillbilly Carpool”. There were ten bikes in all with the Grinch and a toy monkey bringing up the rear.
