the loneliest time of the year

A woman spent all Christmas Day in a telephone box without ringing anyone. If someone comes to the phone, she leaves the box, then resumes her place afterwards. No one calls her either, but from a window in the street, someone watched her all day, no doubt since they had nothing better
to do. The Christmas syndrome.

[Jean Baudrillard, Cool Memories]
