Some gods and the European Championship

Throughout the town there are orange flags because of the European Championship. Two blocks away, in my own avenue, a resident has permanently placed the Indian elephant god Ganesh in his front yard. In combination with the flags it reminds me of the Tibetan villages in Nepal. Indeed, there was Buddha instead of Ganesh and the flags had more colors, but the flapping and whispering of the gods was the same.
