The only question in my mind: Is the arrival of the goddess of wealth and prosperity a blessing or curse in this wealthy land?

My wife and I like to take a walk each night. The lights and candles scattered throughout the neighborhood reminded me of this annual celebration, and checking the net, I see that today is the day. At least one in ten houses in my neighborhood celebrate this, although it seems to have merged with Halloween decorations in a few cases. My wife was wondering why the Indian neighbors were so enthusiastic to get Christmas lights going so early. All is clear now.
