The Fractured ABC's Of Christmas - H
H is for Holly
It's colors green and red
Please don't eat the berries
Or you'll find yourself dead
Man-0-man. Have you seen the neighbors' house this season? What are they thinking? I mean, really. Trying to out do one another has become such a challenge it borders on the ridiculous.
I remember a simpler time when a wreath on the door and a strand of lights across the front of the house was a big damn deal. And, of course, the decorated Christmas tree that shone brightly through the front window. Not anymore. No more boughs of holly on the banister or mistletoe hanging from a light fixture - that just won't cut it anymore.
Now, it's go big or go home, baby!
