Spirit of Christmas

Lights hanging on the Christmas Tree. A pile of wrapped gifts down below. People stand on street corners and ring a bell. They ask for donations and spread Christmas cheer.

Watching From The Field

Out in the field there is a man made of straw. He is a silent protector of the crops. The man watches over the field both day and night. Just standing there with his arms outstretched.
