Back in the days in which Christmas season didn’t start until after Thanksgiving, it was fine. Nowadays, with stores starting it before Halloween, Christmas-in-July, and generally pushing sales earlier and earlier, it leans much much more like capitalism instead.
Thanks for saying that. My take, also. The commercialization of Christmas: Buy, buy, buy…Debt, debt, debt. “You’re so-and-so won’t be happy unless you buy…” That’s the year-round crap that I’ve had enough of! I hate how consumerism has us choosing IT, or family and memories. I’m at that point in life, I want to go out having many rich memories with my Significant.
