I think that in most ways I’m a happy bunny,
If there is one thing which really leaves me feeling very
depressed, then it is everything which surrounds the xmas
This is in part because of the way in which the jesus myth is
and in part because of the way in which the unbridled feast of
consumerism is celebrated.
What makes this even worse is to see those who can least
afford it go on an xmas spending spree, and then find that they
land up with enormous personal debts.
What people need to remember is that there is a major
difference between I need and I want.
If I want to give my friends presents,
then I’ll do it when I want to do so though out the year.
and not just because we have reached some speculative
It’s all about wanting to do something,
rather that feeling a social pressure to do so.
The other thing which gets me is the way in which a lot of
public transport services close down for anything up to 56
Like great !
– Here we are forced to take some time off work,
and we can not get away from our homes.
– So much for the excuse that we are all having time off work
in order to see ones family and friends.
If only …….. !
The only good thing about the whole situation is that it gives
me some time to catch up with my various projects,
and do some spring cleaning at home.
Oh happy days!
We talk about living within a 24/7 society,
but this only extends to 365 days minus one week in the year.
I look forward to the time when the whole xmas holiday
season is something which is confined to the history books.
Roll on !
