Christmas is almost here. I used to really enjoy Christmas until it became so commercialized and people started asking me how many Christmas gifts I had received.
Whatever happened to this being the season of giving instead of receiving.
Christmas has become the season of stress. People are rushing around trying to get the perfect gift. Trying to get everything so they can serve the perfect meal. Have the perfect Christmas party.
I was at Walmart the other day and I almost was run over by someone rushing around the store with their cart. Thinking more about all the gifts they needed to buy instead of being in the present moment.
To me, Christmas should be about spending time with your loved ones. Getting gifts for people who are less fortunate. Helping people out who are having financial troubles. Being in the present moment and really enjoying your loved ones while they are still here. Inviting a neighbor over for Christmas dinner if they have no one to spend the holiday with. Being grateful that you are still here to enjoy another Christmas. I can only hope that other people will see Christmas the way I do and the tide can shift from it being so commercialized.
