Christmas is a very important date for we meet with our family. We have lunch or dinner with all the members of our family, some of whom we can’t see frequently and it’s at this special time that we meet all together.
Christmas has a negative connotation, too. Actually, it is the time to spend a lot of money in food, presents… etc. Shops have made a very important business out of Christmas shopping.
All prices go up in relation to other times of the year. People spend a lot of money (even more money than they earn)
It is at Christmas time when we try to share and give something to poor people. This is called the Christmas spirit, but in fact is just hypocresy try to give only at this time. The real spirit of solidarity is when a person shares all that he has got, not only at Christmas.
And…. What about Christmas carols? We can hear them in all streets, in all shops… and we try to sing them too.
And decorations? All big cities are ornated with enormous Christmas trees, lights and other typical things. This is very attractive for our eyes, making us buy in an compulsive way.
But in fact this is a special time for me and I like it very much, although if you think a lot about Christmas , you can see all the negative and positive aspects.
