HAPPY . . er . . MERRY . . er . . ???

Yesterday my blogger friend Judy posted this picture.  I thought the city of Prescott might be rushing the season a bit.  But then when I was in town, I noticed that the gang at the Jersey Lilly also had begun the festive celebration.


On his balcony overlooking the Courthouse Square, owner Tommy Meredith has his carol singers up and at 'em.


But we can forgive Tommy since he is the main impetus behind the fund raising every year to make sure the Square is lighted and decorated for Christmas.

Meanwhile, downstairs at the Palace Restaurant and Saloon an old west lookalike was maintaining a vigil.


We chatted about the decorations and he said the Palace would soon be sporting decorations as well.  

Merry Christmas, everyone, even though it's only November 19th and a week before Thanksgiving!  I guess it's never too soon to start in Arizona's Christmas City.

    1. He had a six-shooter on his other hip. He told me there was going to be some entertainment pretty soon. I said I thought maybe he was going to shoot someone. He replied, "Oh, no, they might be paying customers!"

  2. Yup, it's a bit early but people are busy decorating already. I like the portrait of the fancy cowboy.

  3. The stores are already putting in Christmas stuff, I can't believe it. Nobody needs to worry about commercialism losing it's Christmas significance.

    1. They try. There's a whole group of western imitators. You ought to take a look at The Palace website. The guy in the black hat glaring from his seat at the bar is Cowboy Dave, the owner. Real name Dave Michaelson.

  5. I have a Facebook friend in Illinois who posted photos of her Christmas tree up already. Crazy!
    Those Llamas are on Dunlap and 12th Avenue.

  8. Well, there are worse things to rush, but still it's a tad early. The old cowboy looks a bit like an iteration of you.
