I just received this holiday missive in my in box from Visit Orlando:

Florida Residents – Don’t Skip These Savings!

It’s holiday season in Orlando!

Come share in the holiday spirit in Orlando’s world-famous theme parks and resort hotels as they dazzle with jubilant cheer along with miles of garland and twinkling lights.

Holiday traditions and joyful celebrations transform Orlando — Theme Park Capital of the World ® — into a magical wonderland guaranteed to have your family singing “fa-la-la-la” all the way home.

Celebrate the holiday season with our list of events, parades and lights, including several options at low or no cost, or included with theme park admission.

Because the holidays are a joyous time — and no destination is more joyous than Orlando.

No mention of Covid-19.

No mention of the rising case load and overcrowded hospitals.

No mention of asymptomatic health care workers who’ve tested positive for Covid being kept in the rotation to treat patients.

No mention of masks or social distancing or pandemic precautions.

WTF?!

Are “miles of garland and twinkling lights” enough to entice Covidiots to ignore the experts and put their lives on the line in order to stand in line?

Oh, wait . . .

My mistake.

It’s a “magical wonderland” . . . I guess that means that Cinderella’s fairy godmother waves her magic wand and eradicates the virus from all and sundry entering the theme parks.

Fa-La-La-La-La!

Aah . . . that’s better!
