Not the worst thing in the world.
First of all, Merry Christmas! I know that this is not everyone’s holiday, but it is the one I subscribe to – regardless of what it might mean to everyone. So just consider this as my wish for you all to have a great holiday! I wrestled with the idea of today’s post – but watching some pretty ridiculous nonsense on Facebook got me riled up enough to write this.
The Holiday season is a time of giving, they say. What should be a fun and peaceful time of the year is, from my observations of those around me, filled with stress and frustration. One of the major contributors to this negativity is the gift-buying process – especially when choosing gifts for children. Usually, people fall into the trap of shopping for kids based on marketing that facilitates “easy” decision-making. Of course, the other word for this is “laziness”, and I’d like to tell you why.
