Considering some of the derp my fellow Texans embrace, nay, cherish, this is in fact rather cute.

It is these remarkable demonstrations of independent thinking which is why I love Texas.

I've encountered a few texans in my life and if it's one thing they all share is the fact they love to tell you how they do_______ in texas. It's typically bigger and better, and always annoying.

"This is how we do it in Texas"

And this is why so many people are ashamed of being associated with Texas. 

That secession thing that was going around? Please Texas, follow through on your threats.

Oh the displays for homeowners are smaller. Space is often at a premium in the Bay Area, especially in the City, and a lot of people live in apartment buildings (which makes it hard to have any actual public display).

Wait, I'm sorry, was your question rhetorical?

There is a common snicker often heard among people who don't live in Texas about the Lone Star State. We like to hunt and fish and eat chili with no beans in it.

Wow, that's so different from other places. Not a day goes by where someone snickers at me and says "Those Texans like to hunt and fish and eat chili with no beans in it... not like us Georgians who hate to hunt and fish and only eat quiche."

Then we snicker. It's very common. Everybody does it.

A similar manger scene, except Baby Jesus instead of lying in a crib, is already nailed to a cross.

Meh, I used to decorate a Christmas tree with fishing lures. I mean come on, they already have hooks attached.

My yard art for next Christmas will be Santa and Rudolph in the Alamo,holding off the elves.
Santa will be wearing a coonskin cap(PETA alert) and the elves dressed as Mexican soldiers.
Throw in Frosty cooking up a pot of wild hog chili,without beans,and I'm sure to win first place in the town's decoration contest.

All the plastic crap you xtians like to hang on your houses/balconies/fences/cars/etc during the month of December comes from China.

It's such a waste of time (to decorate), money (trade deficits), electricity, and shipping space from China. So enjoy that nice glow of holiday decorations while you complain about the U.S. economy, our reliance on foreign energy sources, our debts to countries like China, and the so called war on christmas / christians.

I want to throw all of my neighbors decor in a pile and light it on fire at the end of the street.

Houston-Venezuelan here, just came to say that I'm somewhat scroogy about this as well - however, not everyone here in Tejas is a Bush-jerkin-neocon-Rovian-acolyte.

But it would be warmer, so that would be nice.

5 degrees today. That is the high temp.

And this is why so many people are ashamed of being associated with Texas.



What about Kentucky, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Florida, California, or Washington DC?

For example.

What states are you particularly not ashamed of?:

Santa should be taking aim at JFK riding in the Presidential car. That would be Texas.

I look at a Christmas lights display and all I can think about is how much their power bill is going to suck at the end of the month.

Maybe i'm doing it wrong.

That, plus, I meet all of them OUTSIDE of Texas. I always end up asking, "Why did you leave if it's so great?"

Going all Clark Griswald this year. House is fully lit up, along with the fences and shrubs. Need to get the trees and the motorized reindeer up next. Yes, the power bill might suck, but since I am the one paying it everyone else can just appreciate the light show or STFU.

/Had no Christmas at all last year because my wife's father passed away.
//Said she wanted lights this year in his memory, so lights she is going to get.

Now I know what she meant.
