Seasons Change

Ok... now that Thanksgiving is over, it's time to get started on Christmas!

I think the busiest place in Terrell this morning was Walmart, with their Black Friday specials. I've been to a couple Black Friday sales and I really don't understand why anyone puts themselves through that much stress. Every year I went I was never able to get what I wanted - and usually ended up hopping back in the car and driving to the Forney Walmart, only to be disappointed again when I got there. The crowds and all the people aggressively trying to push their way to the sale items that are 'strategically' placed around the store always seemed nightmarish to me.

So this year I decided to watch from afar. Well, actually the first pic above was from Napoli's parking lot. I didn't dare venture into Walmart's =)

After documenting the crowds at Walmart, Jim and I decided to go get some pictures of the sunrise in downtown. I'll follow up with some of those photos later today.

For now, here are a few of the lamp-post Christmas decorations in downtown Terrell. As a kid, I always remember driving through the small towns in Arkansas on the way to visit family in Missouri, and all the lamppost angels, nutcrackers, reindeer, bells, mistletoe and garland wrapping around the poles always fascinated me. It just made it 'seem' like Christmas. The cold air this morning helped make it 'seem' like Christmas to me too!

Thanks for the memory. I haven't seen these lamp post decorations in some time. I do remember them from when I was a kid.
