Maybe it is because we don’t have an article of clothing associated with any of our holidays. Or maybe it is something else. But I have never understood why grown men and women walk around sporting a Santa hat or other festive wear during the Christmas season.
And it’s not just an isolated sighting here and there. On a recent trip to Chicago, I lost count of how many folks were attired in plush red hats, reindeer antlers, and the like roaming through LAX and ORD.
I just don’t get it.
Is it a cultural thing? Or is it due to Frume Sarah’s missing “fun and light-hearted” gene?
