Does Christmas really come earlier and earlier every year?

Post  El Guapo on Mon Nov 22, 2010 7:36 am

IT seems like it does. Every year we see all the decorations etc just that little bit earlier in the shops.

Why do we spend so much money over Christmas? What is it about this festival that compels so many to gamble with bankruptcy just so they can afford that gift for their nearest and dearest that will probably be discarded two weeks into the new year?

Suicide rates triple over the festive season. This is no coincidence. The pressure is simply too great for some and Christmas, for many, is the final straw that breaks the camel's back.

Is this how God, if he exists, would want us to celebrate the birth of his Son? With hardship, depression, and financial woes?

Commercialism and greed have corrupted the spirit of Christmas. Religion is meaningless now.

Once the big stores get rid of most of there summer stock, the winter stock starts coming~ namely the start of the xmas stock. So by the time xmas is upon us we have had enough of it all. Shame really!
