She cam came to the house to tell me how offensive it was. Therefore, the flamingos go out every year -- on Thanksgiving -- regardless of where we go for the holidays.
    That's funny! My mom HATES pink flamingo stuff. So, for the past 4-5 years, I've done what I could to sneak them in.

    I started with Dept 56 flamingos with wreaths around their necks that were made for villages. I snuck them in and no one noticed (!!!) until thy were breaking it down!

    I can't remember the ornament from 2 years ago...last year it was a 8" plush flamingo with bendy legs as an ornament.

    I snuck this year's onto the tree Thanksgiving night. We'll see what happens... :D

    I've seen this change with just a person or two. A few years of seeing other people do it seems to be contagious!

    Yep, that's what happened around here. No one decorated but it only takes one. I put my stuff out and now everyone is starting up.
