Christmas Sales

I was thinking this when I saw Christmas being displayed and advertised last month (October) and I thought this cartoon cut from my local paper gave a funny twist to it!

Hi there Faira..this time Michele sent me, but you know I would have come anyway...It is incredible how EARLY the stores want to remind us that it is Christmas...the last time I was in England was in the Fall of the year...and in September, the stores like Harrods, were already decorated...THAT seems to early, to me!

Michele sent me to see you, Faira.

Yes, you're right. You'd think they'd at least wait until after Thanksgiving, but no, as soon as Halloween is over out comes the Xmas merchandise. Hell, at work they put up a Chyristmas tree this past week. It's sick! And this cartoon certainly attests to that.

I just posted about how disruntled I am that Christmas, a 24 hour holiday, seems to last 3 months now. I hate it. I really really hate it.

I hate the way they accelerate the holidays. Christmas decorations are up even before Thanksgiving. It gets worse every year.

The greedy merchandising is demeaning to what is considered by many to be a holy day.

During this whole busy season how many times do we stop to reflect on the one to whom this season is supposed to give reverence? Do we teach our children that Christmas is the day that we christians celebrate the birth of Jesus? We should teach our children the meaning of Christmas to us, but letting them experience the season for themselves. With a healthy knowledge of what Christmas really means spiritually, they will grow up to be well-adjusted people. The rush and bustle of the holidays won't get them depressed and into a frenzy, making them buy more gifts than they can really afford. They won't lose sight of what Christmas really means.

Sam I Am, I am afraid that when a lot of people think of the Almighty durring the Christmas season, it is the "Almighty" ... Dollar!
