I thought I had seen it all last Christmas. Every year, retailers put on display more hideous holiday decorations. I'm guessing it started with giant Santa Claus's and reindeer displays. It morphed into those giant snow-globes, complete with a Christmas scene and falling snowflakes.
Now, just in time for Halloween, comes this gem, a giant day-glo green skeleton head in front of Winn Discount on Court street! In Carroll Gardens, we epitomise tacky. Besides the plethora of Catholic icons and flamingo type lawn ornaments, the holidays bring us garish Halloween displays and kitschy Christmas set ups. You just wait and see how many of these over sized skeleton heads will be adorning our neighborhood lawns in the next few weeks.
