Ah the Atlantic, a bunch of doomsday types who never have anything positive to say. That is why I don't read anything from there.

My theory is that Christmas is a boomer thing. They want to remember the good times of their childhoods and perpetuate this weird fantasy of magic and plenty. I think that in 20 years, when most of the baby boom generation is gone, Christmas will scale back to something more sane. Because right now it isn't about religion, or celebration, it's consumerist nostalgia.

Were the Boomers obsessed with recreating Victorian England?

Sometimes I watch YouTube videos of old TV commercials from the 80s.  Judging by some of the dresses they put little girls in, I'm going with 'yes.'

/seriously, that's a child, not a storage system for lace and bows
