In the aftermath of the holiday, it becomes clear. It is not the retailers who are behind the commercialization of Christmas. It is the trash bag manufacturers.
Stage 1 of operation “Put House Christmas Lights Up” is complete, and I will have to continue onto Stage 2 tomorrow.
Problems: (A) this was not supposed to be a multistage operation; (B) in the revised plan for the operation, Stage 1 does not include having any lights up on the house.
