Holiday displays are meant to be festive and joyful and invoke the delight and wonder of Christmas- sometimes the result is anxiety and panic. Please consider the wishes of others when decorating this year.

A retired forklift driver from Hastings voiced some concerns about Christmas lights and decorations in a Facebook group recently and I feel the need to share:

Those of you who are placing Christmas lights/decorations in your yards, can you please avoid anything that has Red or Blue flashing lights together? Every time I come down the road, I think it's the police and I have a panic attack. I have to brake hard, toss my vodka, fasten my seat belt, throw my phone on the floor, turn my radio down, and push the gun under the seat. It's just too much drama, even for Christmas. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.🎄
