    Please stop with the complaining…I didn’t exactly see a “Jesus in the manger” float or the giant Allah balloon either. Please try to just enjoy a beautiful day to give thanks and share time with loved ones rather than looking fault finding and whining.

  2. Judy Stern says:

    So the Menorah float is on the way? I never saw it. Nice anti semetic statement.
