On the other hand, I do like Christmas lights, since they generally make ugly stuff look nicer. However, since they don’t have Thanksgiving to act as a buffer here, people start putting up Christmas decorations before Halloween (which is another holiday they don’t celebrate). Plus, they leave those decorations up longer after the New Year. I guess that’s OK and all, but when the Christmas Season lasts as long as the Green (ie, Rainy) Season, then maybe it’s just not as special.
Or maybe it’s more special that way. I don’t know. Who am I, Burl Ives?
