Never one to settle for ho-ho hum, we've chosen our holiday yucca (a Spanish Bayonet), adorned it properly with chili pepper lights, and added our very own Pancho Claus who sings and nods his head to Feliz Navidad! Can you spy the little feathered rooster as the tree, er, yucca topper?
Later, we will add a piñata, Becto, the red-nosed burro! (Anyone remember Cheech's story "Santa Claus and his Old Lady?"
When you think about it, using a yucca makes more sense in Texas. After all, how often do you see a scotch pine covered prettily in snow out in our countryside? And, other than in perhaps certain Lone Star communities, how often would you encounter a German saint walking the streets of Lubbock as compared to an elder Spanish man wearing a big brimmed hat?
And, you are far more likely to discover burros than reindeer in any given Texas pasture.
