Many of us have had a bit of holiday overload by now. My holiday was actually fine but was exacerbated by catching a cold, I think the first one I have had since I stopped working at the school. Both Frank and Ernest had it earlier, so there was no escape. It made holiday cooking a little difficult but everyone pitched in. We had turkey for Christmas Eve, and a recovered Ernest made lasagne for Christmas Day.
The recycling bins were also overloaded. What part of "flatten your boxes" don't people understand?
And this overload. It's just a small corner of a massive display that could even be seen from the freeway. They won a "best lights" award from a newspaper; the corresponding article stated it costs over $40 per night to run the lights. At least the music was broadcasting on an fm band and not blasting the neighbors.
