Americans LOVE the holidays. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the real biggies over here, of course, but they don’t like to miss out on celebrating ANYTHING. (Did you know it’s Administrative Professionals’ Day next month? There is a worryingly large number of cards on sale here, should you feel the need to express feelings of gratitude to the Administrative Professional in your life. Personally I always preferred a pay rise, but hey ho.) Last year, my neighbours celebrated pretty much every possible holiday with some spectacularly unnecessary decorations on their front door. I’m hoping they will repeat this feat in 2014 so I can illustrate for you the USA’s insatiable love affair with tinsel and flags etc. They have started well, so here I bring you Valentine’s Day:
More to come throughout the year, I hope.
