Christmas Parades




Christmas parades have changed a lot since the last time I went. Which now that I think of it, I can't remember an actual date....

No floats, a few gussied up trucks and a lot more commercialization. The Ronald McDonald character was in the parade with a McDonalds car. Aside from the fact that the kids liked him, I don't know why he was in the parade. He didn't look any different than he does in the commercials. A lot of the parade was that way, a lot of local commercial interests interspersed between local kids groups and a few bands.

Oh well, the kids I was standing next too, seemed to like it. Maybe when they have grown, they will have the same complaints....
