Christmas Packages

I found this picture on the New York Public Library website. It says it’s a post office in Chicago at Christmas, but those packages don’t look very festive or inviting.

I have yet to put up my Christmas decorations. Why am I resisting? Could it be that these rituals have finally lost their charm for me?
