Ribbet Around the Christmas Tree

It's been hard to get into the spirit of the Christmas season this year and I'm not exactly sure why that it is. It could have something to do with the freakishly warm temperatures, or the fact that I could not process the concept of Christmas until I had all my finals done and grades in. Or maybe because I can't find my jingle bells I normally lace in my shoestrings.

The nearby shopping center hangs these flags every year and every year I marvel at how much they remind me of dissected frogs. Oh sure, if you study them, straight on, you see them as candy canes with yellow bows on them. But if you're in an office chair right now, spin around, thereby simulating driving by at 50 miles an hour and you'll see that the two pictures following bear a striking resemblance to each other.

Keep spinning--you'll see it soon.

Off to do some last minute shopping and trying very hard not to think about the implications of dissected frogs as a symbol of Christmas....
