Classiest Week at the Curb

The week after Halloween is always the saddest week at the curb. All the streets in the neighborhood are lined with discarded Jack-o-lanterns. Some are funny. Some are strange. But mostly, they’re just old and tired and sad.

The week after Thanksgiving, however, is always the classiest week at the curb. Once again, the streets are lined with pumpkins. But this time, they’re white and green and cantaloupe-colored. They’re squat and speckled and bumpy. They’re heirloom pumpkins.

The only thing wrong with them is … they’re not Christmas decorations.
