Holiday stress bites the bag

Posted on Mon, Nov 29, 2010 at 12:32 PM

Every year it's the same old, same old. You get pushed, shoved, traffic, no seats on the bus, seeing people who can't afford the materialistic side of the holiday and those who simply can't pay their bills. Crapmas has become a big money making scheme. I had a friend the other year who had to tell her kids there was no Santa because she didn't have the money! Family and love is what the holiday is supposed to be about, not who is trying to out-do who under the christmas tree! While someone is getting an Xbox someone else is sleeping in the shelter and hoping for Christmas dinner. Not fair at all. Fuck materialism. —Fuck materialism bring back values.
