Christmas Fatigue

It’s now even Thanksgiving, and I am already feeling Christmas fatigue. I see the lights and the decorations in store windows and think, ‘Oh, no, not again.’
We were taking a walk near the house and came upon a block where three of the houses already had their lights up. This year I feel very wary of the whole buy-consume-buy thing that is such a dominant feature of the winter holidays. Isn’t it possible to just press fast-forward and skip it all?
