So Christmas is Here??!!

One needs only open a newspaper or turn on the TV to see these words, as a testament to commercialism, Christmas begins in November and ends with the "Post-Post Christmas Sales" in February.
Such is the nature of all major holidays, for me the only benefit of Christmas is the fact that on the 25th there are no ads on television (at least in my country). Ironic, perhaps they have no ads so that everyone has time to reflect how long it will take to pay off the credit card, before being targeted again in the after Christmas sales.

Some may try to defend the so-called "Spirit of Christmas", but the fact is most, if not all people on Christmas expect to get presents, a holiday built on the obligation to give presents.

As with all gifts it is the thought that counts, but with Christmas the "thought" is one forced by obligation rather than a genuine gift, which I believe should be done without expectation of getting a gift back, or because the millionaires who own 50% of the businesses in your area want you to.

Of Course this is just my opinion, but I think its an opinion worth having...
or else I wouldn't have it.


  1. *agrees*
    Sorry guys, I don't HAVE that much money :I
    What is really awkward is when you don't get someone a present, but they get one for you XD
