The usual banal electric Christmas lights sometimes so ostentatiously displayed in our city are a complete waste of money.
Most of these cheap light bulbs are made in foreign countries by under-paid workers living under communism.
I strongly urge all citizens to unplug all this paraphernalia as it only serves as a target for fanatical extremist terrorists.
P.S. Many of the few living people in Iraq have no electricity. We should be more Christian and send them the money we could save by turning off the lights.
