Especially in places like Phoenix where it doesn’t snow. I may be a grinch, but it’s more of an inconvenience because of people’s expectations. The year that I lived alone in an apartment, sequestered from humanity during my quasi-midlife crisis, was the best, most relaxing Christmas because I didn’t do anything.
I’m of the opinion that Halloween should WAY outlast Christmas. I celebrate Party City’s efforts to keep costuming a year-round event!
