Suddenly... Christmas

It's the day after thanksgiving, and suddenly, the world has turned upside down from being thankful for what they have, to asking for more things. Overnight, bright lights have been hauled up around roofs and Santas have appeared on every street corner.
And my family took me to a christmas farm.

As a French girl, I don't get all the fanfare. I can't go anywhere without being told christmas is right around the corner. It's over the top! It's so excessive! Sure, christmas is a time of celebration, but it seems as though people are celebrating for all the wrong reasons. No wonder French people lecture me about american consumerism.
