Materialism: It isn’t going anywhere

26/12/2009

There are two predominant kinds of people around the holidays. There are the people who exude the “Christmas Spirit”, and people who take it upon themselves to remind everyone how the season is encased in a thick commercial shell. The “counter-culture” has become just as big a part of regular culture. It’s just annoying, I mean really, what do people have to say that hasn’t already been said?

I think that people need to realize that no matter how much harping they do about the things they hate, people already know it.

I seriously don’t even know where to go with this. I bought presents for the people I care for, and they in-turn bought things for me. I would have been just as contented if I had received nothing at all.  The commercialism of Christmas is here to stay, and no amount of complaining will change it.

You don’t have to go with the proverbial  “flow” of things, but spouting predictable rhetoric is just annoying.
