I had cause to go into our local shopping mall this week. It was decorated with Christmas displays. I was happy to see, that once again the Nativity Scene was present, to represent the true meaning of Christmas.This day and age it takes alot of courage for a public place to display any image of Christianity. More often than not, Christmas is made into a Winter Celebration or Seasonal Festival.
Of course there was also the Photo with Santa area, decorated to look like Santas living room. I did'nt take a picture of that because , I figured that was Santas territory. He works hard all year getting the toys ready for the girls and boys. The least I can do is allow him the Monopoly on Santa Photos to try to recoup some of his overhead!
There was a beautiful North Pole display, featuring all kinds of arctic creatures and igloos. They had some sort of illuminated mat under the snow that made it glow like glacial ice. It was a very pretty sight. I love the little penguins marching out of the igloo. Speaking of malls, this reminds me that I need to get back there to pick up a few more things. By few, I mean LOTS!!!
Are you having fun shopping? And has your mall got a Nativity scene?
