Holidays are stupid

Posted on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 11:05 AM

I wish I lived in a world with no holidays. They are so unbelievably commercialized, especially Christmas. The fact that selfish Canadians run to and from the mall days before Christmas splurging on expensive gifts for their loved ones and giving hundred dollar bills is absurd. Are you all unaware of poverty and world hunger? No one thinks for a second about the famished children who are dying by the hour. It is so heartbreaking. This country is so selfish, it is disgusting. Holidays bring out the worst in people. Christmas has become so unnecessary. People have forgotten what Christmas is supposed to be about. Instead of buying electronics and designer bags for our very fortunate family members and friends, Christmas should be about donating and giving to the poor, hungry, and homeless. They are the ones who are truly in need. —Christmas Sucks
