Golden Holiday Image 11




Last year I visited a small Southern town where there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature puzzled me. The three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets.  Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I headed back to my hotel.

At a "Quick Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets. She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "You damn Yankees (Seattle?) never do read the Bible!" I assured her that I had, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible. She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said 
See, it says right here, The three wise man came from afar.”

At least the VW is red!

Well, now we know that story isn't true, because she didn't say 'See right cheer' :)

Now, now! You know that Santa likes all little boys and girls, even if he has to dodge around the old cars to find a place to land his sleigh. Besides, these are some of Santa's easiest stops. All the children want for Christmas is their two front teeth, and that is all their parents want too.

You'al have a Merry Christmas, now you hear?
