Let's turn away from all the political rhetoric, the increasing military troops, right wing, left wing, depression, recession, obsession, and celebrity insanity for just a minute. How about some "8x10, colored, glossy photos complete with circles and arrows on the back of each one describing what it was" to get in the holiday spirit. (My apologies to Arlo Gutherie's "Alice's Restaurant". Those of you who are of-a-certain-age will understand.) These are from Metamora, Indiana, a small old place in the middle of nowhere, where each year there is a joyous, old fashioned, friendly celebration until January. Just imagine the smell of popcorn, hot dogs, horses, evergreens, and hot chocolate. So simple.
