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.
