I really didn’t think I’d get to post this in November, but life is full of surprises, isn’t it.
On my way to work this morning, I spied my first Christmas Lunacy House. Yep, it has started. Way out in BoganLand the consumers have started gathering all manner of cutout buildings, candy-cane lights, and inflatable reindeer to plaster all over their houses, and lower the property values.
It bothers me. So much pathetic plastic bullshit propagating ridiculous notions of Christmas. Regardless of whether you believe Christmas is about celebrating the birth of the Christ Child, or a special time to gather and appreciate family, friends and love – there is no place for inflatable glow in the dark santa’s bums in chimneys.
I don’t know what you think Christmas is about, but I can guarantee it’s not about buying gimmicky north pole crap.
