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.

Christmas

You are my greatest gift

Standard

Love is a gift that darns sun from rain.

And you placed the gift of love on my heart’s mantle

You are the silver lining in any and every dark cloud I could ever find.

There is no need to go looking for the light when you bring it with you.

Your love makes me feel like there is no tomorrow

When I’m with you I don’t need anything

As you are the greatest gift of my life
