The Price of Christmas

Standard

The materialistic orgy that Christmas has become deeply saddens me.

There is this competition between adults in any family to see who can buy their parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles the best, most expensive gift or to see who can outdo the other in gifts among themselves.

The focus of Christmas has become consumerism which is basically the exact opposite of the teachings of Jesus.

I’m not religious person by any means, but it seems really hypocritical to celebrate the life of a guy who preached against greed and materialism by focusing on materialism.

Just an advice: Never get into debt trying to show people you care… Don’t get sucked into consumerism. Your time and presence is so much more precious than any present.

    • Yup, sadly most holidays are becoming celebration of consumerism: Christmas, Easter, mother’s day, father’s day, etc Everyone like to give and receive gifts but I think we should select gifts that the others really need or want, or we can make donations in their names.
      Rob, I wish you a Merry Christmas for you and your loved ones ❤
