The sights and sounds of the holidays are upon us, as Sacramento residents and Americans across the nation begin to decorate their houses for Halloween—some even for Christmas already—and purchase hoards of goods from multiple retail locations.
The City College Panther statue was covered in pumpkins recently for a Queer/Straight Alliance club fund-raiser selling those plump little orange squash. While this was for a noble cause, raising money for a college club, it seems this is what the holidays have become more and more in recent years.
Specifically, Thanksgiving and Christmas have become so commercial that most people celebrate these holidays without even realizing what they’re all about.
