Just wonder why December 25th isn't just renamed Santa Claus Day.
It has nothing to do with the birth of Jesus, so everyone can still have a good time, if they wanted to, but it wouldn't be involved in religion, or a load of things that aren't true.
Religion isn't being mentioned re the date so far this year.... :roll:

Too commercialized

I blame the Americanz.

We are just stupid bloody consumers, Who have turned a season of goodwill in to one day event.

What a bloody shame.

why? do people only have a good time at xmas?...........
stalin banned xmas in communist Russia and called it father frost day,are you a commie?
personally I don't celebrate xmas, but have a good time any time I want,
people have there beliefs that's up to them,
but yes its all about big business,especially charging stupid money for a xmas dinner out at a so called restaurant, anyone with a bit of sense can cook a turkey dinner or such like, cant they?,and take a plateful round to someone who cant, and all the so called gifts most of its one day tat,,

For me it’s an anti climax,

I work normally on the eve, the day and the day after, then when I want to enjoy the season of goodwill, it’s like all over, stupid crap on the pub telly with constant interruptions for the Dfs sale and Easter and summer holidays.

I don’t think jc would be happy about the commercialization of his birthday, especialy considering how nasty his demise was.

Christmas is crazy, kids everywhere starving, going blind getting abused and the west pours billions down the drain in a one day event, on crap that we don’t need, new clothes and toys that we will tire of rapidly, cards that will not be read that land on the mantle piece then land in the bin.

then in landfill,
such a waste of resources, what about saving the planet
the mountains of wasted food people buy in excess then bin,
the question about the people starving , that's down to there goverments being corrupt, foreign aid gets to the countries that need it but the corrupt government officals siphon it away from the needy for ther own gains and wealth ,so if the said government officals aint bothered about there own people ,what more can we do,
when heads of state of these starving counties appear on tv ,they aint thin and malnourished there all fat bastards. says it all really
theres no shortage of food worldwide, not with all the GM crops available ,all the drought resistant crops available , it education ,birth control and the WORK ethic these people need,

Do what I do and give 50 euros to charity instead of sending cards. I also ask people to put 10p or 10 cents in a charity box instead of sending me a card
