Spirit of Christmas lives on ? HA!! Not in this "atheist turning"
country. Every time you turn around the atheists are removing Jesus from public
display and that trend will continue. I went to Wallmart in mid September
needing to buy a sprinkler part and the entire garden section was cleaned out
and replaced with Christmas stuff. SEPTEMBER!! The "real" spirit of
Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ - something that is
hard to say in public anymore without getting sued!!
Black Friday has ruined Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the entire period in
between. It is nothing but a false and commercial left-wing festival in which
young parents try to buy their children’s love by spending money they
don’t have for things they don’t need. Ironically, this
doesn’t create love, it creates greed, avarice, and discontent. Indeed, it
is a large part of the cause of the epidemic of spoiled brats that has inundated
society.It is no coincidence that the left spends such effort
promoting Black Friday. As mentioned previously, this false holiday spreads
discontent and ruins family relationships. It also takes something that should
be a spiritual time and turns it into a secular celebration of materialism.
Re:JCSpringWhat nonsense.Corporations are now leftist?
The Walton family are Democrats?People in UT don't buy
Christmas gifts?Black Friday is free enterprise.(For the
record, i've never shopped on Black Friday, and i'm not happy that one
of our family members will have to go to work on Thanksgiving).
