Merry Christmas to All And to All a Goodnight....

You know, the holiday season is the greatest time of the year, think about it..and the commercialization of the birth of jesus makes it all worthwhile. Stop for a second, do you think a greater part of the population would be able to get by these cold, dead winters if there wasn't a filler in there, like all these "holidays"? Temperatures drop, people shut themselves inside, nothing moves in the dead of winter, others fight to stay warm, birds flock south, other animals hibernate, everything is bleak and depressing. But wait, then comes a little something to make life a little more worthwhile, enter the holidays. To think, this is the one official time of the year where world peace is sought by all, those bell ringers are annoying, but this is the only time of the year where they can be acceptable, and hell people give money to them as well. Familys get together, people share in the love of each other, and on one special day people exchange gifts they bought for each other....do they deserve these gifts, are we forced to get them because of some social stereotypical event..whatever the case may be, everyone gets gifts...people open up their hearts to a lot more people at this time of year. Customers fill the shopping malls across America, boosting sales (something along the lines of a 3% increase, which may not seem like a lot, but this happens for weeks at end, and take Target's normal $100,000 days and times that by three, there you go, that's the holiday season for you....)as I said, boosting sales, creating jobs, keeping a standing economy, all is good...

And just why do we do this? some may think it is because we are celebrating the birth of the son of the creator...yeah, maybe that's why it was done before, but now-a-days people could give less a crap about it..alright, some may still do everything in his name, but as for everyone else, we do it because it is the standard, it's traditional, no matter what religion or belief you have, the holidays are for everyone to spread the love that is in their heart. it's a time of giving, sharing, loving, in a way, spreading the warmth to go over the numbness of winter. so yeah, do it to stay alive, to keep joy in everyone's soul, do it because it is commercialized, thank the heaven's for it, everybody should share in the warmth and love of each other, it's the holidays....

enjoy
