Okay people. I (Jill) grew up in New Hampshire…as you may know. Now, I live in the South and am learning new things everyday about how different parts of this wonderful country are. I love things about the South. I don’t love things about the South. Same goes for the North, the West, the Midwest…you get the idea.
This year, I am learning something brand new and I’m trying to decide how I feel about it. Here’s what I am learning:
People in Tennessee LOVE to turn their cars into reindeer this time of the year. I mean, they LOVE it. I have never seen so many cars decorated with antlers and red noses in my whole life. Is this a new thing? Or a southern thing that I missed the memo on? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here are a few examples:
Cute or hideous? I don’t know. You be the judge. But I’ve been thinking about these things a lot because, well…they’re EVERYWHERE in Nashville. I even almost blogged about them a few days ago. So this morning, I was at a stoplight and saw something in the road in front of my car. What was it you ask?
Need a closer look? Okay, I zoomed in:
One lone antler! Stranded in the middle of the road! This was my sign that I needed to blog about reindeer cars today. So what do you think? Yay or Nay on the reindeer cars? You won’t be seeing my car pretending to be Rudolph, but maybe I will see yours and I will wave…because you know what? You are showing some holiday spirit and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.
