My brother and his wife choose to avoid the craziness of the winter holidays, eschewing fancy Christmas celebrations. They eschew or steer clear of decorating a tree with lights or putting up garlands. They deliberately eschew or avoid at all costs what they see as a widespread commercialization of a holy season. My nieces and nephews, however, do not want to give up or eschew their tower of Christmas gifts just because their parents don’t believe in the season.
Quiz: Why might someone eschew something?
- They have an overpowering desire to have it.
- They are open to trying something new.
- They feel strongly opposed to it.
