WITH A PINK PIG!
I’ve heard daddy talk about this pink pig downtown. I’ve been slightly intrigued with the thoughts of meeting a pink pig. Yesterday while watching the news with daddy in the afternoon, I saw it on television. OMP (oh my pig!).
It’s outrageous. I’m intrigued. It’s pink. I’m curious. It’s downtown.
You are probably asking yourself what the heck is the little miniature pot-bellied pig rambling on about? I’ll tell you.
In downtown Atlanta for more than 50 years, Atlantans have started their holiday with the tradition of riding the Macy’s Pink Pig. The Pink Pig is a train on top of the Lenox Square Mall. It is held beneath a 170 foot 1950’s themed Pink Pig tent. Kids of all ages come and ride the train – yep all ages. That includes my daddy who acts like he is five – snorts.
The Pink Pig is called Priscilla – hubba hubba. The Pink Pig train goes through the tracks of a life sized storybook with characters like Priscilla and her friends.
Daddy says that he remembers riding the Pink Pig when he was a child. Unfortunately, mommy never did 😦 I told mommy that I would give her piggy back rides around the house but she said it wasn’t the same?
But this year, daddy says he wants to change that. He wants mommy to be able to ride the Pink Pig and be part of a southern tradition here in Georgia. Aaaww – isn’t that sweet? Personally, I think daddy just wants to be a child again and ride it himself – snorts. I wonder if they will let me ride it?
Do you have any traditions where you are that kind of starts of the holidays for you?

My tradition is to do National Novel Writing Month – through Nov. – 50K words in 30 days marathon. My husband cooks Thanksgiving dinner, while I work. Then I do my level best to get Xmas shopping done by Thanksgiving…doesn’t always work. That keeps me out of traffic through Dec.

I hope they have lots of fun. Mom leaves out cookies and wine. I didn’t know Santa liked all of that stuff. He’s a happening kind of guy huh? XOXO – Bacon

I think with all the booze and the cookies Santa will get a bad hangover LOL and I’m not sure if it is allowed to drive a sleigh when you are totally plastered hahahaha

Priscilla sure is pretty:-) I’d like take a trip on her too.
Mummy’s family tradition is to read A Christmas Carol every year, not quite as fun as a pink train

Your mom is soooo lucky to have such a fun Daddy!! Tell her to go ride with him!!! Here we have the free casino Christmas exhibit which is so lovely I sometimes sniff (I am such a sentimental fool) LOL and also our Myer Christmas window display. Also if you looking for love, check out my page, there is a pretty little white piggie on it. Also I popped my “I survived 31 days of spook” on it. I plan to store it in my awards page but put it on my front page each October. You have such a fun site Bacon! 🙂

Aaww you are so sweet to this little oinker. We are so sentimental here too for Christmas. I’m so glad you liked my award. You so deserved it! I’m off to check your blog. Thanks my friend. XOXO – Bacon

That sure is cute. I would go see it. We usually put up the decorations and tree right after Thanksgiving. We used to go cut a tree when the kids were little. I love seeing all the decorations at the mall.

oh yes! There is such comfort in sitting in the dark in the front room with the Christmas tree lights on – I love it! We usually get the decorations up right around Thanksgiving as well. It’s a great time, isn’t it? XOXO – Bacon
