More Macy’s madness, part 1: Day one
I guess I should just stay away from Macy’s. They tend to go overboard at Christmas, and they really like the penguin. I’ve had several Macy’s shopping sprees over the years where I take home 20 or more penguin ornaments at once. Last year was about the worst, not because it was more penguins than ever before (which it was), but because the madness lasted two days. It began innocently enough with typically excellent ornaments like this one.
