Squirrel Takes Down Holiday Decorations
A squirrel in Philadelphia’s Washington Square Park was spotted taking down his Christmas decorations this morning and stowing them in a tree hollow.
“Yeah, that’s Wilbur,” said park official Clancy Wiggum. “He’s very regimented about his trees.”
According to Wiggum, the squirrel is festive, but efficient. He puts his holiday decorations up each year the day after Thanksgiving and takes them down promptly the day before the new year.
“Before you know it, he’ll be hanging up his Valentine’s Day stuff,” said Wiggum, “though he only keeps that up for about 24 hours, then it’s on to St. Patty’s Day.”
