It's always Christmas if you are poor enough

One of the towns not very far from our village still has their Christmas tree and fair up because the town council doesn't have the money to pay for their removal apparently. It looks pretty sad and dirty abandoned among all that melting snow.

Maybe they should launch a "Please help us end Christmas!" campaign on Kickstarter. Or they could make it a tradition and keep the tree and the fair up all the time and become known as the town of eternal Christmas and try to attract some tourists.

It seems that life can turn into an endless fairytale if you are poor enough. You can't be too poor though, you have to be exactly in that sweet spot where you have just enough money to put the tree and the fair up but not enough to take it all down after Christmas is gone.
