What is wrong with this picture?
One word: clutter.
This is what they call "decorations for Advent."
Second word: stupid.
Where does one start? Ferns? Plastic candles? A crusty stump on the altar? Goofy violet trim, bowl of water on the floor, sloppy outdoor carpet runer on lumber, credence table mess atop altar of sacrifice, cord for sombody to trip over, rocks and branches/plants on the ground, etc.?
Rent a dumpster, strip this mess out and fire whoever is in charge. Then dress the altar in its starched linen and place the magnificent matching cross and candle sticks (that were commissioned for this altar by famed artists and paid for by the faithful) in the center.
