How’s your Christmas today?
I hope you’re doing well.
There’s no denying that Christmas is a few days away. During this time you would experience what we call the Christmas rush where everyone is in a hurry.
I have felt this rush early this week and I have seen the roads congesting due to various cars heading to malls and retail stores. Parking lots were filled instantly and ever isle in the store was packed with busy shopper. It felt like it was hell as everyone was racing to get what they want. Tempers are flaring and people are losing their mind. You would see a lot of crazy stuff happening all at the same time!
When Christmas rolls in, it’s very easy for us to lose our minds. This is strange because Christmas season should be a peaceful and joyful season. Why did this happen?
Well… blame this on commercialization of Christmas. It’s like the big companies wants us to spend a lot of money during this season. We consumers become mindless zombies wanting to buy this and buy that, not knowing that businesses are dictating us unconsciously.
So sad. I mean, it is really a sad thing when most people are going crazy over shopping during Christmas season. And sometimes, people would fight over even the simplest stuff. *sigh.
