    You most likely are aware that McDonalds has the electronic menu/ordering devices in place. I try not to use those, I prefer actually giving my order to the cashier. I still like going to the store to see the item I want to purchase, but some things I have no choice but to purchase online. Things change and sometimes not necessarily for the better.

    Yikes, seems just a tad high priced. A family of four would be $$$. Grinch setting prices?

    Loved Everett's podcast! He's one I can count as a true friend. One I have met in person, who has reached out to me as well as me reaching out to him. We've talked tech, phones, and Santa, of course. Thanks for sharing your childhood, family, and journey to Santa, @TN Santa!

    I try to shop local just to support the local businesses when I can. Especially the local Farmers Market.

    You know, you made me think: I can honestly see an ad campaign and/or a movie or show with Santa using drones to deliver gifts because he's tired of the sleigh. While it would most likely not be well received, look at the garbage that spews out of Hollywood already!

    I was a founding member but I got dropped from the club membership here. I don't come on this site much because I never hear from anyone when I post. Is there a better place to communicate and stay in touch with clan? please let me know. Fr. Santa David

    have not ever seen this before . . . Inside Brazil's Abandoned Santa Theme Park Francesca Street, CNN - Updated 4th December 2018 (CNN) — Driving through Brazil to Rio de Janeiro, you might spot an eerie sight on the side of the road: a derelict gang of Santas, lying abandoned surrounded by palm trees and greenery. Look closely and you'll see these Father Christmas clones aren't alone. There's a sad looking sleigh and dilapidated reindeer nearby. Soon you'll spot the faded candy canes, battered slides and an eerie house. Welcome to Park Albanoel, in Itaguaí, Brazil -- an abandoned Christmas theme park. The park was the brainchild of politician Antonio Albano Reis, colloquially known as the "Santa Claus of Quintino" because he dressed as Santa each Christmas. It was going to be a series of fun, themed-lands over an expansive area -- over 30 million square meters -- but only the Santa area was completed. Following Reis' death in a road accident in 2004, Park Albanoel closed and fell into disrepair.

    Christmas Glow: Festival Of One Million Lights Is Coming To Pittsburgh August 7, 2019 (KDKA) Excerpt – Pittsburgh -One of the world’s largest indoor Christmas festivals is being held in Pittsburgh this year. Christmas Glow, also known as Lumaze, began in 2017 near Vancouver, Canada. Now, it’s coming to 31st Street Studios in Pittsburgh’s Strip District. The festival with one million lights promises something for everyone! Playgrounds for the kids, seasonal beverages for mom and dad, food, and live music are all on tap. SOURCE

    One obvious thing that I would like to point out, is one million lights is not actually that many. With the Mini light nowdays, a string of 100 lights is sometimes only 22 ft long, and it takes me over 1,000 mini lights just to cover my front flower bushes, so that is actually not many, if it was the old fashion C7 or C9 sizes, then that's different. Not that many total bulbs, and with that price, so most likely it's in a small area. Just the engineer in my coming out, moving toward the logistics side, but wanted to know if someone else has similar thoughts?

    Why am I not surprised? It is an accurate response, though.

    I always try to "shop small" at my local area stores whenever I can and even prefer the mall to Amazon, since it creates jobs contributes to the local economy. Give them time and they'll even try to replace Santa and his elves with robotic sorting and packing machines and Amazon drones...

    Too rich for my blood. I'm not THAT far away from Pittsburgh but that price will keep us from going.

    When I tell them "What do you mean, I'm Sonny Boy to Santa" I'll be able to waltz right in and enjoy the view! THANKS POPS! It will be worth the road trip! Now how to get Kathy to come along with me so I can get her in FREE and still call it a DATE NIGHT??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    This Nostalgic Christmas Decoration is Making a Major Comeback August 08, 2019 By Maria Pasquini - People Excerpt: It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas decorations! Although there are still many months until the holiday rolls around, if you want to get your hands on one of this year’s hottest decorations, you may not want to wait. Vintage-style ceramic and porcelain Christmas trees, which became a mainstay of tabletops in the 1970s, have been slowly but surely making a comeback over the past decade, as Better Homes & Gardens pointed out. According to Google, internet searches for the classic Christmas decorations have increased by 488 percent since 2009. **** In addition to rummaging around the family attic, Amazon sells several different varieties ranging from $12.99 to $43.99. The Home Shopping Network and Lenox are also selling their own Christmas figurines, which double down on the Yuletide spirit by playing holiday classic tunes. For all the DIY-ers out there, Michael’s is even selling their own unfinished version, which will allow families to put their own creative spin on their seasonal decor. Happy (early) holiday shopping!

    I have two of these ceramic trees, but I'm having problems finding replacement plastic decorations that you insert into the holes.

    Just checked the website, $40 bucks to get in for adults and $30.00 for kids. Not sure if this is going to go over that well...

    Pittsburgh is fast becoming a huge Christmas destination! Means more jobs and more work in the Christmas entertainment industry. Whew! I'm going to be one tired dude December 26th...

    Personally, I think Amazon is putting the biggest hurt on department stores, versus anything else. The consumer can stay at home and compare prices without crowds, spending money on gas, etc.

    Department stores could have a ‘sobering’ Christmas, Credit Suisse warns August 9, 2019 by Lauren Thomas - CNBC Excerpt: This holiday season could be a “sobering” one for America’s department store chains, warns Credit Suisse analyst Michael Binetti. He told clients in a note Thursday to expect a “wave of lowered guidance” as Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Nordstrom and Kohl’s start to report fiscal second-quarter earnings next week. **** Department stores have been hit hard by investors this year. Macy’s shares have fallen more than 30% this year to trade around $20; Nordstrom has lost about 35% of its value to around $30; Kohl’s shares are down about 24% since January to around $50; and Penney’s stock, having tanked more than 33%to under $1, putting it at risk of being delisted from the New York Stock Exchange.The holiday season is typically a time for retailers to shine, with companies relying on the heavier traffic to boost their businesses, which could be sluggish during other parts of the year.
