It's not just Christmas... All holidays are too commercialized. Retailers put pressure on all of us to buy the perfect gift or box of chocolate or jewelry for a loved one on Valentine's Day. We're pressured to buy cards and gifts for Mother's Day or Father's Day when some of us have parents who really don't deserve it because they're so self centered. And let's not forget about birthdays. I've reached the age where it's just another day for me. I just want a nice dinner with my family. I don't need a present just because I was born. I had nothing to do with that. It was out of my control. Holidays should be about spending time with family and friends, sharing memories and creating new ones. Not about how much money we spend on each other.
