On our way to our Christmas destination, I requested that we stop at the Bronner’s, the world’s largest Christmas store. Because, while some may see it as kitschy and over-the-top, I love it.
I guess I am not alone.
Such a fun place, with the smiling faces and cheery music – I bet it would be fun to live in this atmosphere all year :).
So, tell me: do black people want black Santas? Because this just looks weird to me (although I guess an argument could be made against the standard-issue caucasian Jesus).
When you carry over 50,000 items, there are plenty of interesting ones. Like ornaments dedicated to cell phones or texting …
… or pigs.
Why is this bride mannequin decorated mermaid-style with ornaments? The world may never know.
And of course my all-time favorite: Santa worshiping Baby Jesus, disturbing to me on so many levels. Yet apparently there are folks out there who like it, as it just doesn’t seem to go away.
Of course, there were tons of pretty and nice things too, but a post about them just wouldn’t be as interesting, now would it?
No, this isn’t the work of Fritz from The Nutcracker – seems just hours after we visited, the store was visited by some Grinches. You’ll be glad to know they’ve all now been brought to justice.
