So I pass the house with 5 of those inflatable moving decorations - and at the next house I swear I'm seeing reindeer! Real reindeer! I can hear them too! Snorting & bleating & chewing!
And I only had ONE Guinness with dinner!

So I cautiously advance to find ... one of my neighbors has fenced in his front yard - which now contains a herd of goats! I counted 10 in the dark - there may be more. Adult floppy eared goats .... In a residential neighborhood ....

I'm driving by slowly tomorrow on my way to work to see if they are really there ... or if I have finally sprung a mental leak!
Maybe they're Jewish.

Spoiler:
Having been raised in the Southern Baptist tradition, My knowledge of what to expect at a Jewish worship service was practically nil, so when I decided to attend a Shabbat service at a local Reform temple, I asked the Rabbi if I had to "wear one of those hats that Jews wear at services." With more than a bit of twinkle in his eye, he replied, "No, but bring a goat."
