Naperville’s annual holiday card usually features a familiar location from the city — the Riverwalk, the Carillion or another easily recognizable staple of the western suburb.
This year, the card that’s sent to the likes of President Obama, Mayor Daley and neighboring municipalities will showcase the citizens of Naperville — and everyone’s invited.
Citizens who show up for the Nov. 26 photo op will quite literally spread the message of “peace” by forming the word for an aerial shot.
[...] After a big response to a release posted on the city’s Web site, city officials are working on a new location to accommodate the crowd. As of Friday, the city planned on having the gathering take place at 2 p.m. in front of the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle St.
UPDATE: Yes, we're aware it's the Friday after Thanksgiving. It's a chance to throw a little jab at a suburb that negotiates in bad faith, lays off cops following poor fiscal discipline by the managers, then will probably wonder why traffic control is going to be f#$%ed up when tens of thousands show up for a picture that seems a waste of everyone's time. Why not mobilize those thousands to clean the highways or something worthwhile? A Christmas Card for World Peace? what is this, 1970? Give us a break.
