Welcome to December!
Okay, the holiday season is upon us and there's Christmas in the air, even here in Florida. The current temperature is 49 F and dropping. Sure, Jack Frost would melt into a grumpy little puddle, but anything below 60 F makes the local population pull out long johns and electric blankets. Trust me.
The story behind the illustration to the left is one of show biz and holiday spirit, "Santa's Holly Follies." The featured character is Chris Holly, host of a popular seasonal variety show. The program features juggling wise men, songs of Chanuka and Kwanzaa, dancing snow women, and a ballet flamingo. Not only does the show go all over the map, seasonally speaking, it is the only show staged by Pinocchio's Marionette Theater that wasn't based on an existing story.
