Honoring the fallen…

Well, to be honest, he didn’t really fall. I dumped a bag of Santas out during this year’s installation and these remains of a shattered Santa were at the bottom. I actually remember last year, packing them into bags and trying to shove them into the car. I was pushing particularly hard on one bag and heard a “pop” followed by the sound of cascading plastic pieces inside the bag. I knew I had killed a Santa. I’ll keep him around, I couldn’t bear to just throw him away. I’m sure there’s a role for him in some future project. Maybe I’ll put him in a jar. Even broken into dozens of tiny pieces, Santa still manages to hold that jolly grin.
