The Grapes of Wreath


Over the weekend I constructed a wood peace symbol frame. Yesterday, Mrs. Dada began its conversion into a holiday wreath. It's coming along very nicely. The lights are the only thing left to permanently affix. By day's end the Wreath of God will befall our house, hopefully as a decoration in the spirit of the season.

Realizing how incredibly divisive advocating for peace can be, I'm fairly confident we'll be safe, save for a few who make take extreme issue with juxtaposing what is, for them, two contradictory symbols: Christmas and Peace.

Fortunately, however, we don't live someplace governed by a neighborhood association.

Thanks az & e4e. We hung it this afternoon and it's hard to miss from the street. (I'd like to add even more lights--we'll see.)

az, I'm sorry I let the Colorado yo-yo's stereotype all neighborhood associations. Obviously, with you as president, I'm sure there's a chance there may be an explosion of these in your neighborhood!

Great work, Dada and Missus Dada! I especially like the entire "Wreathe of God" concept. Funny it was just a month ago we were talking about beating lawn implements into swords. I'm glad to see you've been spending much happier time in the garage lately.

I happened to come across a string of white Christmas lights day before yesterday, and what popped immediatly to mind was a peace sign...although I think I'd need more than an 18-lite strand to make it work!

I dunno, but I'm thinking this is going to be a popular decoration this Christmas. I sure hope so...
