When the stockings are taken down from the fireplace, the radio stops playing holiday hits and pine trees are left on the curb, we know that the Christmas season is coming to a close. It is now a much more difficult task to find someone sporting an over-embellished Christmas sweater, because the ironical and “adored tackiness” has transformed into plain old “tackiness”.
Although the season of giving has come to a close in January, the winter chill is still present. The season makes known its power through huge gusts of icy wind and low temperatures, expecting us to wrap ourselves in blankets cower in a hole. While spending a winter hibernating under quilts doesn’t seem like such an awful idea, most of us have to work, attend school and social gatherings.
