OCD sufferers are not happy with the new Christmas decorations on the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. The tunnel is one of the busiest ways into America’s most famous city, New York. It journeys under the Hudson River, connecting Manhattan with Jersey City, aiding many citizen’s daily commute in and out of the big apple.
However, this year’s festive decorations adorned on the tunnel’s entrance has caused an upset amongst OCD sufferers. As it stands, 1894 people have signed a petition to rearrange the Christmas decorations as a Christmas tree is currently unsightly placed right on top of an “N”. The change.org petition is started by Cory Windelspecht who writes “Nearly 1-3% of America’s population suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)”, causing daily afflictions for its sufferers.
Cory suggests the Christmas tree is moved from the unsightly “N” to the more appropriately shaped, “A”, which he claims “would fit perfectly” and help those who have OCD like himself. What is more, another O-shaped wreath is also unattractively plonked on top of a “U” to the dismay of us graphic design enthusiasts.
Cory goes on to say, “This one small things triggers anyone with the slightest hint of OCD every time they enter the city… This is the time where all people should be celebrating and have an opportunity to enjoy decoration and festivities. This country is divided already, let’s start doing things to bring us back together.”
