THE DARK SIDE OF CHRISTMAS

Ours is a diverse neighborhood and many families don't bother to
decorate their homes or yards during the holidays. Others are so eager
to embrace the Christmas spirit that they put their lights up right
after Halloween. Even though there are supposed to be 12 days of
Christmas, (Remember the song?) these same eager folks often will
strip down every vestige of holiday decor even before New Year's Day.
This seems very odd to me and I do sometimes wonder if these fickle
folks are really celebrating Christmas or perhaps just showing off
their lights. Well, I've been pondering this question and have just
reached an epiphany. You can probably extinguish which families in
your neighborhood are the true believers by using the process of
illumination.
