So yes it is Christmas, and “a Happy New Year” time. Beside the happy feeling that surrounds me in december, I just can’t get enough of the Christmas tree, the lights and the orange and cinnamon smells in the air. December is beautiful on its own. Happiness and the need to share it feel my soul for no particular reason. But it has become harder and harder to express it. At every corner you see someone marketing these feelings. You have to buy that, you have to give this other stuff, you have to have whatever they’re selling. I mean, ok, advertising is important, but it has become louder that words. It just yelling at us. Aggressive Christmas advertising is so annoying that at some point you just want to not buy anything.
I just want to wrap up and put a bow on my feelings. But Christmas still means presents… So I’ll just buy the best Christmas gifts that I like, not the cheap ones, not the luxury ones. Just the ones that really have value to me. Aggressive marketing takes all the Christmas spirit out of Christmas giving. I bet even Santa hates it!
