On a street very near the Human's school live Tom and Jerry, a gay couple who for the past 20+ years have brought true Christmas Spirit to the neighborhood.
The tree is living, a 65-foot Norfolk Island Pine, which they purchased as a house plant in 1973. Every night between December 11th and 24th, Santa Himself visits for about three hours, distributing candy canes and listening to the wishes of children and grown-ups alike. Music plays, carolers sing, toys whirl and spin, and much festivity and frivolity is shared.
It is a wonderful San Francisco tradition!
Since the Human's
cheapo inexpensive camera does not take good pictures at night, here are some daytime ones to show detail:
This is mostly to show scale--you can see the girl sitting on the bench (circled) looks pretty small!
The tree has a nice big fat star (which obviously looks more impressive at night!)
The Human loves these person-sized dolls suspended near the big stockings
Yeah, these stockings
The spinning ferris-wheel thingies are in front of a nice big stack of presents!
There's only one flaw. Have you spotted it?
Yes, I thought you would!
Where's the kitty???
Meowy Krissymouse, Efurrybuddy!
See you Monday!
