It's Simple Math People. In Fact, It's Just Counting.

Yesterday we drove by a strip mall containing a few small quickie-food type places and an insurance agent’s office. It appeared that whoever owned the building was feeling festive – there were large snowflakes made out of lights between every store. The only problem was that the snowflakes had eight points.

The last time I checked, snowflakes have six points.

Let me check again.

Yep, still six points.

When do kids learn this, in second grade perhaps? Or younger? Who do they have decorating for the holiday season nowadays?
