Out of sync
There's a place called North Pole City on Oklahoma City's south side, and while they do sell some non-Christmas stuff, I suspect passersby might be taken aback by the sight of the place as they zip down I-44 in the middle of June.
It's a sort of low-level cognitive dissonance that Patti, for instance, has noted:
Sometimes I wonder what it's like, being part of the Christmas industry singing Christmas carols in May, or making ornaments months in advance, or all year, even. It would seriously disjoint my own sense of time, but one has to assume that such an industry exists.
That has to be an alternate dimension! Contemporary physics has nothing on real life!
I have to admit, I have enough trouble getting into Holiday Mode in December; I'd hate to have to try to do it in the spring.
