Not much thought has gone into the Christmas decorations this year. When they were first turned on people just stared at them in complete disbelief. Even the mayor was silent after the countdown. Finally, he cleared his throat. “This is our city’s way of giving all of its citizens a halo.”

The round of applause that followed was polite. Brightly lit circles hanging above them inspired nobody. The meaning was missing for everybody standing nearby.

After walking off the stage, the mayor just looked at his team. “Which idiot said yes to this?” His hand hit the desk. “Heads will roll!”
