The Christmas countdown
Growing up just a stone throw from New York meant that we often came into the city, even in the traffic-heavy month of December. One staple, for as long as I can remember, has been the countdown to Christmas, as seen underneath the Panasonic billboard on the ramp to the Lincoln tunnel. As a commuter who drives by this daily, I expected to see it up now that the cooler months have come and the holidays are just around the corner.

Imagine my surprise then when the bus pulls around the ramp as it spirals down towarda the gaping tunnel mouths, and not seeing this classic countdown looming overhead. How will I know how many shopping days remain till the holiday is upon us.

Of course, I now just pull up amazon's home page where I can see how many days left I have to get free super shipping before Christmas.
