This year the flag twins of Delaware and Kentucky were decked out with a Christmas Spirit.
Delaware was 'Northpolarized' with a Nutcracker Theme, while the two men embracing on Kentucky play the part of Father Time and Ebenezer Scrooge. Scrooge is wearing pajamas and throwing money with an enthusiastic Christmas Cheer, while Father Time is watching the last of 2013 dwindle in his hour glass down for the next coming year. Instead of the grim and dreadful scythe, a wand with an hour glass is used to denote the passing of time. On its tippy top is crescent moon which is a natural timepiece in the heavens.
Other changes include a lighted shiny red nose on the cow of Delaware who is also wearing fake antlers. The heraldic wreath-head band is now green and red. The ship of commerce is replaced with Santa's Sleigh. The gun of the country rifleman is now a long sword and the hoe of the farmer transmuted into an axe. The motto of 'Liberty and Independence' is replaced with 'Joy to the World.' Also note the feather of the country gentleman in green is preserved on his nutcracker helmet. Finally in Kentucky some red berries were added to the goldenrod cross wreath to give it some holiday charm.
So a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! And an especially joyful holiday greeting to yous living in Delaware and Kentucky! Ho Ho Ho!
