Thanksgiving Parade 2012

Went to the Thanksgiving Parade in New Rochelle last weekend to watch daughter Amy (see Amy and the Dolphin) march with the NRHS band. Marching bands and bagpipes and antique cars and roller derby clubs (they were great), but the star of the show was undoubtedly the large man in the red suit with the long white beard. Lot of nice details in this image: the two-handed, politician wave, the Christmas lights strung over the albino reindeer, the Queen's Wig store in the background, and the three kids looking out from the second-story window. [NOTE: And of course, let us not forget the appearance of the big man in Laos last year (see Santa in Vientiane)]. 


Santa in Vientiane

Happened on this scene walking down a side street in central Vientiane, Laos. The horse had plastic reindeer antlers tied on his head and Santa was sweating profusely. Merry Christmas, everyone. [NOTE: Wonder what the mother is spraying into the air at 1:00?]
