Merry Commercial Chri$tma$

Filed under: Musings — jackoatsmon @ 1:35 pm

Christmas is coming again.  While the world talks about goodwill to all men, the meaning of Christmas and all that, for many it is a commercial christmas and is about getting presents, attending parties, eating, drinking and being merry.

Nothing truly wrong about having a commercial christmas.  In moderation.  Its going to help the retail industry and the economy after all.  Then again, look at all the stress we put ourselves through trying to find the perfect gift (I’ll settle for finding a decent gift), rushing all over and fighting with the crowds – all in the ‘spirit’ of Christmas.

All in all though, I am grateful that I am able to fight with the crowds and buy gifts for friends and family.  It means that I have loved ones to share the holidays with. It is always good, as well, when people really like what you’ve gotten them.

So to all who celebrate Christmas in whatever form and for whatever reason – Merry Christmas.  May you find joy and happiness during this festive season and the year ahead.
