Let's keep it that way!
I remember some published in QST a long time ago. I am sure it has been done.
I don't like to go into stores much around this time of the year. I have a long white/grey beard and am fairly round. I have a tendency to attract small children.
I remember an incident in a local store when a small boy came barreling around the end of an isle and ran into me. He looked up at me. His eyes became as large as dinner plates and he screamed out at the top of his lungs "SANTA!!!!" and grabbed my legs. His mother upon hearing him scream, came flying around the corner. She grabbed him and told him I was not Santa and started pulling him away. Whereupon he tightened his hold on my legs and started screaming and crying even louder.
Made for a real scene. Now, I like little kids and I have been offered good paying Santa jobs but I cannot handle the little darlings that much!
Up here I think we need another version of the story: "T'was the night of the big quake. And all through the house, things were shaking, and rattling, and falling off the shelves. The tree fell over, caught fire and burned half the house". I'll leave it to KL7AJ to do the honors. He lives up at North Pole.
Send a PM to @KY5U... he will be happy to author some prose for you.
I'm detecting some ba-humbug occurring in the forums huh?
Check the older threads. It’s been here before. Several times, as memory serves.
Ok the tree, lights and everything are up !
However, there was one minor issue that has since been addressed and resolved...
...and apparently, he also stole somebody's holiday gift card...
Give it time. It's only the First of December.
And some radio stations here are already playing Xmas carols!
Christmas decorations went up right after Halloween. Not at our house but in the neighborhood.
