A Different Sight

Okay, we all know it's the Christmas season. On my way home from church this morning, I saw something I've never seen before this time of year - Santa walking his dog. Yep. In full Santa suit, he was walking his dog on our beautiful cool morning. So, though I'm used to seeing Santa this time of year, it's usually sitting in a mall, on his big throne, asking the kiddies what they want for Christmas. Now, with the notifications finished, I'm off to get more writing done. With the last couple days taken up with Thanksgiving, I'm 6k words behind my goal. I was able to get 3K done yesterday. I'm hoping to get to 70K today. There's only four days left of this month and if I want to reach 80K, I need to write. Have you seen any unusual sights for the Christmas season? Thanks for reading.

Nothing unusual around here at all. Not even any deer in town

Not having any deer in town, is that unusual?

Christmas sights don't usually start until December here. But I believe Auckland had its Santa parade yesterday.

We had ours a week ago, but I didn't think about it, so missed it.

@just4him I don't go to parades anymore, don't like crowds

@valmnz I don't go because of my arthritis. It's hard for me to get around and or stand that long.

A nice sight greeted you today. I am pleased to know that Santa has a dog, along with all those reindeer. No unusual sights yet for me, but I will keep an eye out for them.

Now is the time to see those unusual sights. I'm also on the lookout for great Christmas decorations.

I have not been out much to see anything but the front of the building.

That's sad. I hope you can get out more during the holidays.

I bet you rubbed your eyes to make sure you weren't seeing things. What sort of a dog did he have? Do you remember?

It was a tall dog. Slim, black. That's all I had time to see as I drove past him.

@just4him Are you sure it wasn't a reindeer?

@JudyEv It would be the first reindeer I've seen on a leash.

It was. Made me almost wish I wasn't driving and had my camera so I could get a picture of it.

I never had either. Interesting sight. I think his suit was brand new. It was still very white on the edges.

I've only seen a big, blue boot on my granddaughter. That was unusual for me.

I'm sure it was. I hope it's coming off for good soon. I am glad she's able to perform in sneakers in the Broadway show.

In the town near where we used to live Santa used to cruise around the first Sunday of December all dressed up in his red suit on his Harley. It was hilarious the first time that I saw it. I guess he got a dog and he's living near you now.

No and I am glad. I want no reminders of Christmas this year. I stay home and watch Christmas movies and that is enough for me. It will be my first year being all alone but at least my cat Sid is here. Hey who is to say that you didn't see the real Santa walking the dog????

It makes me sad that you don't want any reminders of Christmas this year.

@just4him it will take awhile to get over everything and being all alone doesn't help.

I haven't seen any unusual sights but I am seeing more Christmas d├ęcor in out neighborhood that I remember in years past. Maybe more people are feeling the Christmas spirit.

That would be nice to see. I'm still waiting to see more decorations go up here. Some have them. The house across the street, always seen in my photos from my window, just took down the Halloween pumpkin decorations he had outside. I think he lives alone. I've never seen his wife, and occasionally I see his family show up. At least I think it's his family.

@just4him a man around the corner has decorated his yard. It's nice but I really loved his Halloween decorations. I wish I had taken a picture.

I didn't have my camera, and I was driving, so it would have been impossible.

No though a couple years ago I bumped into Mr and Mrs Claus at our local restaurant. That was surprising.
