Imagine my surprise at a television news report last Saturday night picturing the beginning of the Christmas season, and just as fall arrives!
According the the story, a Christmas lighting company has already begun hanging decorative holiday lights in Highland Park and in Farmers Branch. Millions of lights will be put in place over the next 10-12 weeks, the lighting company owner reported.
Highland Park Village and a public park in Farmers Branch were pictured as examples of the several places the work is underway.
Seems like the Christmas season arrives earlier every year.
But, that's not my point here.
Care to guess who was hard at work stringing those lights up in the branches of trees right there in the Farmers Branch park?
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm sure all of those gentlemen had the proper papers to document their "legal status" in the country. What do you think?
Of course, I can think of nothing the political leadership in Farmers Branch needs more than a little of the Christmas spirit!
Turn on the light, and hurry!
