The Chicago Transit Authority gets into the holiday spirit by running a special train decked out with fancy decorations, lights, and Santa Claus. I’ve never ridden it, but I did see it when it was pulling into the station at Garfield the other day. There was a family with two young kids that were very excited about it, and Santa called them over to say hi. Apparently the conversation went on too long, because when the family left Santa and tried to get on the train, it pulled away without letting them on. I guess the holiday spirit only goes so far.
