Sparkling Shame: Money Spent On Christmas Decor Could End US Homelessness

The spirit of Christmas isn’t just a good feeling, it’s a multi-billion dollar industry. Lights, tinsel, decorations all make for a pretty sight, but sometimes, they obscure those less fortunate.

    It’s outrageous that we are supposed to buy into the season of goodwill and all that brainwashing using a festival that has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity. Where is it mentioned in the Bible that we must produce so much tat and trinkets in honour of someone for whom there is no historical/physical record. That aside, the gluttony of food/ finances/pointless present giving and the sheer hypocrisy of it all is wrong.
    I’ve pulled out of all this quite a few years ago as I can’t justify any of it when there are for example 43 million Americans on food stamps, lots of people in the UK sleeping on the streets. Given that the UK is supposedly a rich nation, why is it that there are sections of its population that cant afford to feed themselves anymore? There is constant starvation in sub saharan Africa perpetuated by this very system stirring up mass hysteria from celebrities producing yet another self congratulating dirge that cures absolutely nothing.
    My neighbours have their houses lit up with enough twinkling lights to make the National Grid dip when they are switched on.
    The sense of proportion, restraint or shame doesn’t exist. It never occurs to many in our land of supposed superabundance that thought should be given to others all year round, not just during this sanctimonious ritual.
    By the way whoever is snooping on theses post for whomever, I make no apologies for my opinion.
