The Spirit of Christmas


If a red clad trespasser just had to break into my house via the chimney, I'd rather it be one of these chicks.

Distinguished friends and colleagues, the Spirit of Christmas is in danger of being forgotten. And this isn't one of those phony dangers like global warming or terrorist plots, this danger is very, very real.

More then ever, people are seeing Christmas in a different light; they see it less as a time of excess and indulgence, and more of an opportunity for remembrance and appreciation. This is manifested in various ways; be it visiting family, friends, or for the religiously inclined, honoring the birth of a man who may or may not be the savior of all mankind.

This all must stop now!

What happened to the golden age of Christmas? That of unashamed materialism? The times when we would rush across the shopping centres on a last minute shopping spree, desperately trying to find cheap gifts for people we couldn't give a rat's ass about?

What happened to the times when we would eagerly await to receive all our heart's desires, only to have our hopes dashed upon the relization that the gifts we received were just as worthless as the gifts we gave?

What has happened to those happy days my friends? What has happened?

Thus dear friends, I shall fight the good fight. I shall celebrate this Christmas the way it was always meant to be celebrated; unashamebly materialistic.

Oh, and before I forget; Merry Christmas.
