    It's a commercial holiday, an excuse to get consumers to fork up wads of cash for useless commodities which will end up in the back pocket of some sweatshop owner in China or multi-national shareholder in California.

    Im more into the familial aspect of it tbh myself! I like the feeling it creates but have noticed a few people that usually spent it by themselves are getting together this year! The commercialsation of it is awful. My family and myself usually just do Kris Kindle with a small value on the price but the thought more so that counts.

    Christmas is just a seasonal ''Hit and Run''
    I never ever believed in Santa or any of that when i was growing up.

    Not until last Christmas when my Granny got knocked over by a Deer. It was attached, with others to a sledge and driven by some big fat guy with a white beard, wearing a red and white coat. Police were called and liability went either way as Granny was slightly intoxicated.

    Yet the big fat guy drive on and laughed, ho, ho, ho [cheeky fecker]

    Christmas Season starts on the first Sunday of Advent. I don't want to know about it before then. Sorry.

    Ah yes. This is the celebration of a child born out of wedlock, if I'm not mistaken.
    All I'll say is this:
    Being the unmarried mother of the son of a deity, conceived "immaculately" is a lifestyle choice.
    She should have all her benefits cut as soon as he's old enough to master basic miracles.
