I'm very pro-Christmas and even pro-commercializing it. I like to spend money, buy gifts. I love the lights, the music, the entire thing. It's the only time of the year that I shop. Other than that I'm an online guy and just order in my guns and ammo from the bunker. But this whole Christmas before Thanksgiving and right after Halloween is ruining it. The more you spread it out the less significant it becomes.
I'm with this. I like to give and receive gifts I admit. It provides things to do, like decorate with your kids or see decorations, santa etc. with your kids. I like that it boosts the economy, I like getting together with family that I don't see enough.
"Governing doesn’t disappear when government shrinks; instead corporations come to govern your life — like HMO’s, oil companies, drug companies, agribusiness, and so on, with accountability only to maximizing profit, not to public needs." - George Lakoff
I dislike the environmental impact that usage of Christmas lights bring. I also dislike our federal government hauling a tree from the state of Washington or Oregon or wherever this years tree was transported. I'm ok with celebrating the birth of Jesus as chosen in this society as December 25th (though no one knows the true date except God). But I celebrate him everyday, thus December , as the OP was questioning isn't MORE significant than other months to me.
Any month the Red Sox win a WS is significant, I'll admit.
