Will somebody please turn off the lights?
I'm talking about the Christmas lights, all of them, so the holidays can finally be OVER. I'm tired, I have a bad cold, dishpan hands and a huge headache. I've had enough. So I'm asking really, really nice to please, turn 'em off.
My neighbor's house across the street is still till ablaze with flashing, blinking, musical lights 24/7. There are so many lights in their yard that I can see their reindeer's reflection in my living room tv screen. My next door neighbor's house is still covered in all red lights so it resembles Santa's brothel. It's hard to miss. And the house on the other side of me is decorated with this....
No lights, but come on. It's time to take the nearly dead wreath off the Porta Potty. Come to think of it, the Potty's been there for seven months making it time to lose it all together don't you think!
The mall can remove their countless miles of decorations and lights too. Yes, the Santa photography booth has gone dark but the glowing, animated, singing angels gotta go. They've worked hard since October and deserve to have their plugs pulled. Same goes for the caroling snowmen and dancing gingerbread guys.
It's time. Can we just give it a rest?
Of course I realize the moment the Christmas plug is pulled, Hallmark will replace it with Valentine decorations and promotions but that's okay with me. Those decorations don't usually light up, sing or dance around. Valentine's Day is a kinder, quieter, trumped up holiday that I'm usually very successful at ignoring.
So what do you say? Can we lose the lights-- pretty please.
Have you had enough of the holidays?
