Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
It’s December, and people are festooning their houses and their Facebook walls with Christmas crap. By the end of Thanksgiving, I start thinking I’m getting used to this festival of largely-bad-taste (I don’t care how common it is. Red and green do NOT go together), but then I will spot something horrible, and I’m traumatized all over again.
I love Christmas trees, and I’m especially fond of a good tree topper. It can make or break the whole effect. But I’ve been routinely appalled by the crazy stuff people will shove onto the top of their trees.
