Self Portrait In Christmas Ornaments

Self Poartrait In Christmas Tree

'Tis the season and all that. Sad to say, our municipal Christmas decorations in Kiener Plaza are, um, kind of pathetic. Old, worn and small, without any enthusiasm, they are scattered across the grass, unnoticed by most passing drivers. The one below looks like those suspicious packages you are supposed to report to the authorities.

There is a big Christmas tree with some indoor-style lights, so dull outside as to seem embarrassed of itself. Frankly, it's all a little depressing.
The Occupy St. Louis people did add a little extra decoration.

A few planters are filled with pine boughs and some shiny tree ornaments. That's a little better. They can stimulate your imagination.

Greed really is bad, that's for sure.

Yes it is but I'm not sure it's such a pretty Christmas ornament. You, however, are a delightful one!

You don't want me to start a rant on LED lights on Christmas trees, do you?
