I dunno, it’s not really all that big a deal, really, but this morning when I left the house I found on my front steps a folder with the City of San Jose logo on it. When I opened it, I discovered inside this certificate:
City of San Jose
WHEREAS: Thank you for your time and kind consideration in delivering holiday cheer to your neighborhood by delightfully lavishing your home with festive outdoor decorations; and
WHEREAS: The twinkling lights and extravagant holiday décor has made spirits bright by making the community smile and jump triumphantly with joy; and
WHEREAS: Your jolly holiday homestead will be admired with fond appreciation because it captures the warm spirit that this magical time of year represents.
NOW, THEREFORE I, Councilmember Pierluigi Oliverio, do hereby recognize and commend most highly your beautifully decorated
2011 WINTER HOLIDAY HOMESTEAD[Signed] Pierluigi Oliverio, Councilmember, District 6, City of San José
Yeah, I assume that everyone who decorates gets one, and it’s just a silly piece of paper, right? Of course, the funniest thing is that I haven’t even finished decorating yet.
