Of Christmases Forgotten: Christmas No Longer Means What It Used To Mean.


“These temple destroyers, devotees of ravaging commercialism, seem to have a perfect contempt for Nature, and, instead of lifting their eyes to the God of the mountains, lift them to the Almighty Dollar.”   ― John Muir.

Christmas – The Reality And The Myth.

I suppose it was inevitable that Christmas would eventually devolve into the crass commercialism that it is today. The "madness of crowds", is now what comes to mind in the last few days leading up to Christmas Day. 

Christmas now means nothing to me - nothing at all.
