Along my way

A Savior in a Witch Costume

There isn’t a better way to kick off Christmas season than a Santa Parade and Tree Lighting ceremony, right? Well, wrong! Any, literally any other way but that is better if you mean Las Vegas Town Square Parade. And I MEAN Las Vegas Town Square Santa Parade.
Imagine yourself stuck in the middle of an ocean-size crowd of people, kids and strollers with a stroller of your own and a 4 month old who is having a panic attach (who wouldn’t in such apocalyptic circumstances!?) To make matters worse, to get out you need to move in the direction opposite to the crowd’s!
A girl dressed in a costume of a witch volunteers to steer my stroller out while I conquer the ocean with a baby in my arms. More too, she dips into a restaurant that has an exit onto the other – crowd-less!! – side! A savior she is, no less.

Oh, in case you were wondering, I did not see the Santa parade nor did I witness the Tree Lighting. All my efforts and attention were focused on how to not let the crowd crush my baby. Go figure…

   Angry side note to Town Square management: this was NOT a kid-friendly event by any stretch of imagination! Anticipated number of visitors should be posted clearly on every advertising source.

  1. Oh Elena, sounds frantic! It is people who help in those circumstances that give you faith in human kindness. It’s amazing how a small act can change someone’s day. 🙂
