2. They offer distraction. Holidays are generally very busy times of year their are decorations to hang, stories to tell, meals to prepare. All of this may make finding time for creative endeavours more difficult.
3. They promote production. How many of you are making (even a few) gifts this year? How many of you plan on visiting your local Christmas bizarre and buying something sweet and special that says something to you about the season.
4. They promote procrastination. With all the upcoming holiday events (Halloween, Christmas, new years) who has time to *waste* on art.
