Joyful Season

Tis’ the season of joy and commercial advantages.  Many people think that Christmas is too commercialised in this modern society.  I agree to a certain extent.  However, how often do we go home and see our family now?  We don’t, unless there is an occasion and Christmas is an occasion where families gather, rediscover their differences and bicker about anything and everything!  The businessmen may bank on this occasion, so what?  We are willing patrons and no one can deny that buying a present is so much more convenient than making one.

Yes, every freaking restaurant may charged an extortion amount during this occasion but it is a choice.   It is our choice.   If you think you could prepare a Christmas feast at home, then do it and you do not need to fall into the commercial trap.  But if you couldn’ or too busy to, then you just got to pay an extortion amount for a meal with your family.  In any case, it shouldn’t be about the money, it should be about spending quality time with your family.

I don’t know about you, but to be able to bring joy into someone’s life, it is like lighting up your own soul in within.  We should embrace the tradition and never allow it to lapse.  Not even if we are disgusted by the commercialisation of the occasion.  It is occasion such as this and others that constantly remind us of family value.
