    How true, Michael. To think of the misery and desperation throughout the world; I wonder what the ones who suffer so badly each and every day of their lives make of our lavish (and yes, wasteful) Christmas celebrations.
    Not a scrooge-like point you make here, but a very true one that too many ignore each year.
    All the best.

    Hi Michael,

    To me, Christmas is never about the gifts, but about honouring the birth of baby Jesus and being grateful for what you have. I don't have much, so could not spend much, even if I wanted to! :)

    This will make 'em think, well done!!!

    Nicely written Michael, you've nailed exactly what Christmas has become now. A huge commercial money grabbing opportunity for many on the planet, the true meaning of Christmas lost amongst the discarded Christmas wrapping paper.
    A nice write Michael!

    The foot note cleared it up for me , and it reminds me of the anger Jesus experienced at the sight of the temple being used more for commerce than praise and worship

    Christmas is and always has been very special to me. It is celebrating the birth of Jesus. The pain he had to endure and he sacrificed his life in exchange for our sins to be forgiven. Even if I wanted to I can't afford buying since I have so little to spend. What I can give are the things money can't buy. Love is the greatest gift of all. In today's world people go in depth and shower each other with gifts. That to me is not Christmas. You have delivered a powerful message with this excellent write. Take csre
