You put Christmas lights up all over your house and turn the timer on.
Then you go inside because its way too cold to spend much time admiring them.
The next day when you get home you see them again, but its still too cold to look at them for any length of time.
You and all your neighbors who also put lights up are huddled inside their homes because of the cold.
No one is even looking at the lights!
Now in Australia where its summer during the Christmas season people can stroll up and down the block in their shorts admiring the lights because its warm. This makes sense.
But in North America and Europe, Christmas lights don’t make any sense to me.
