My parents, safe and snug back in Planet California, sent me photos of them gettin’ in the spirit.
This Sugar Plum Fairy has been ‘mine’ ever since I had a concept of Christmas decorations as things you hung on trees and no matter how appetizing-looking did N O T eat. (This was a concept I had to learn with a few hits and misses and some extra fiber in my diet.)
I personally enjoyed her ninja stance. If you twist her up and let her go, she unloads a can of woop-ass on whatever ornament is in the vicinity, sending them North Pole-ward with a good roundhouse kick.
Christmas cheer can have an edge. She may wear a dress, but this Sugar Plum is no fairy.
