Those Crazy San Franciscans…

One quiet Sunday afternoon just a few weeks ago, in a bizarre display of things-that-are-not-surprising-in-San-Francisco, groups of people on trains all over the city spontaneously burst into Christmas carols. It was August.

It was supposed to be about happy jolly fun. Then it turned into a political act about free speech. And then it turned back into happy jolly fun.

The story is covered at the SF Shenanigans blog.

And I’m only sharing this because it’s interesting. I had nothing to do with it. I swear. That isn’t me in those pictures. Really. I’m a good upstanding citizen who doesn’t create anachronistic merrymaking chaos.

Seriously.

Stop looking at me like that.

You believe me, don’t you?

    Ha! Awesome! :)

    I’m not the biggest fan of Christmas in the world – frankly, I loathe it, and everything about it. BUT – and it’s a big “but” – anything that breaks people out of their coccooned isolation into a brief flash of realisation that, hey, it’s OK to join in and have fun around people you don’t know… is fine by me. Even if it includes (shudder) Christmas carols.

    Bet you wish you’d been there…!
