I hate Christmass. Let me count the ways. 1) Santa Claus is crap. It teaches moral lessons that I find suspect. The main point is "be good so you get lots of toys." You shouldn't be good cause it will help other, you shouldn't be good cause it is the right thing to! Be good so you can get toys. People are only selfish because we don't teach them that it is wrong. 2) Commercialization is crap. However, we live in a capitalist consumer driven economy so that is what happens. I can deal with that. 3) The season of goodwill toward man is crap. That should be all year. I don't like people who donate $20 to united way during December and are then pleased with themselves as good people for the entire next year. You should give every month. Especially if you are in a position where you are financialy comfortable. And I dont mean when you have paid everything off and are debt free, that will probably never happen. Our society could not handle it if people actually did that. I mean if you know that you are going to be able to make all the bill and loan payments this month, then donate something. 4) The music is terrible and repetative. At least I don't listen to the radio, so I am mostly spared.
