it is indeed the season for all kinds of taseteless and tacky tat to be displayed both indoors and all over front lawns in suburban usa-ville. driving around some neighborhoods (not mine) it is hard not to notice the plethora of molded plastic and inflatable festive illuminati adorning front porches, driveways and picket fences. where jesus/mary/joseph/wise men/shepherds/rudolph/xmas choir are accompanied by a large collection of snoopy's wearing santa hats. i thought it a little strange and random to showcase a comic strip character from several decades ago. why not garfield, kermit the frog, papa smurf, or fred flintstone? cue: "american pop culture enlightenment 101b, ed. 2." i was answered in 3 words; "charlie brown's christmas".
my learning curve comprises of a double helix.
