Oh, yes, and I'm ashamed to admit sometimes I'm one of them. I don't go Christmas shopping and I don't take part in a consumer Christmas....celebrating it the way we've been doing it in this country is just a creation of merchandising to sell more stuff that people don't really need and often don't want. It's got nothing to do with what Christmas is really about. It's about profits...profits...profits. This is no fun....it's just stress....stress....stress.
So having to wade through hordes of shoppers and standing in long lines at checkouts just to run routine shopping errands is a real trial of my patience. Sometimes it wears thin. I try to postpone what I can until after Christmas.
And I did work retail once, long ago, so I know what it's like on the other side. It's as much of a zoo on that side, too. All in all, I'd prefer celebrating Christmas like it was celebrated a hundred years ago. That's something I'd find enjoyable.
Apologies for my private rant. I feel better now.
