Secret Santa strikes again on Garden State Parkway

The Secret Santa of the Garden State Parkway has struck again. Last year, someone surreptitiously hung nearly a dozen Christmas ornaments from the boughs of a pine tree along the side of the toll road in Little Egg Harbor Township.

Over the weekend, the daring decorator was back, leaving a large red and gold ball suspended from a string.

Whoever it was had to work at it this time. Maintenance crews from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, which operates the parkway, cut down the lowest-hanging branches earlier this fall in a pre-emptive strike against whoever was leaving the ornaments.
