“A Sign Of The Times?” Seriously?!
I’m driving in to play “Christmas Classics,” and I see this sign.The big sign at the roadside stand says that this tree nursery has been a part of your Christmas (not “Holiday”) since 1970. I can assure you that they have had this tree stand in the same location for as long as I can remember. With all due respect to Jersey favorite son Bruce, the “Born In The U.S.A” sign is new this year.
“Real Christmas Trees, Made In America.” What does this say about us, and our expectations? I guess I’ve always assumed that the trees at the local roadside stand came from this country (even from the New Jersey tree nursery selling them). And now I’m thinking: You know what happens when you assume!
As the sign says: “Real Christmas Trees” come from America.
Maybe, its the “Holiday Trees” that come from China.
“Good Grief, Charlie Brown!”
