the devil in disquise

I went to my Mom’s after running around on errands today, and she’s gussied the place up for Christmas and let me tell you, it is catalog pretty.

Except for one thing, the devil angel.

Yes, that’s right, my Mom has a devil angel. The scariest Christmas decoration  ever created, and bare in mind I grew up with a Krampus  Christmas tradition.   My Mother says her angel is NOT the devil, that she is beautiful.  I’ll let you decide.

Marika: That angel is horrifying.

Mom: She is not!

Marika: Seriously, she’s a devil.

Mom: She’s pretty.

Marika: I’m taking a picture of her so I can show people, and seriously, do you think it’s a good idea to keep  her so close to the nativity, she’s going to scare baby Jesus.

Mom: SHE’S RUSTIC!

I go to take the picture.

Mom: For God’s sake! Don’t get so close!
