The Christmas Room

   In our neighborhood a house exists, and in this house is a room. The room, judging from the outside, is about 16 feet square, with a large picture window facing the street. This window is bordered with white stencils in a Christmas motif. In the center of the window is a large Santa Claus face, printed on tagboard. When the light is right, or occasionally at night, you can see a fully decorated, flocked Christmas tree in the center of the room.

   It has always been there, as long as we've lived here. The people who live there, while quiet, seem to be ordinary. Perhaps there is a special needs person, or an invalid who enjoys the theme, living in that room. For whatever the reason the room exists, I can only say Merry Christmas! Today, and tomorrow, and tomorrow...
