Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice
A big thumbs-up to all the cheerful lights, parades and celebrations in the area. I am thankful for these things because they help me get in the mood for Christmas. Merry Christmas, all.
Thumbs-down to people who find other people's valuables they've lost and don't report them or turn them in to a store's management. These people are no better than thieves.
