For the last couple of festive seasons, I've been keeping an eye out for Christmas decorations whenever I'm in a place that's especially miserable.
Whether it's at the DMV, a cemetery, or a building where children go to be treated for cancer, everyone seems keen to spread a little festive cheer at this time of year.
