As most of America is busily struggling with replays of Covid angst, and the effects of climate change, another most of America is busily snatching up freshly cut evergreens to place in their homes for a few days, then send off to their local municipality to turn into mulch.

Yep, it's time to destroy a tree for Christmas. Why? I have no idea. Why not? Check out the carbon footprint.

Maybe not chopping down millions of trees for a few days of decoration won't make much of a difference. Maybe it would have an impact on the tornadoes, and hurricanes and droughts, and all kinds of freaky weather that is being blamed on climate change.




Then again, why not celebrate with a dead inflated Santa, or reindeer, or elf? In my neighborhood, as I walk around, I see dozens of deflated inflatable balloon figures.

I'm guessing that they get blown up at night—but in my neighborhood, no one goes out walking at night. Few even pass by driving at night. It's especially noticeable that most of these inflatables are on dead-end cul-de-sac streets where few cars pass.

Oh well, happy Festivus.
