to The Town of Grumpy Resting Faces.

Joy to the world?

What a bunch of grumpy looking people, especially for not even cracking a smile at this happy creation of a holiday-festooned sleigh holding irresistibly cute twins, pulled by an apparently annoyed dog and his equally p.o.'d master. One would expect at least a few cheerful faces, being it was such a clever concept for a mid-winter carnival but there must have been something that sucked the joy out of whatever the plan originally was. What could have 'grinched-up' this sour-faced group?

Some "carnival." I can't find even the hint of a smile in this photo.
