magic in that old silk hat

Holiday inflatables began springing up all over the place last weekend. One neighbor has their inflatable penguin up and running whenever I drive past. Another home has their two inflatables turned off in the afternoons. They probably only run them at night along with their Christmas lights. Their deflated Frosty the Snowman reminds me of the classic TV special. Frosty melts but is magically reformed when hit with a gust of cold air because he was made from Christmas snow.

When inflated, the Santa Claus balloon looks like the Rankin/Bass version of St. Nick from "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." But the deflated Santa looks like he fell face first from his high flying sleigh and went splat on the lawn.
