Revolution


Santa's boots and crinkled lists.
Harried faces and crying children.
Love bound in ribbon and credit cards.

“Never mind.” She turned away.
Enpty-handed, she left the mall, humming a carol to herself.

I really like the flow and rhythm of this. And it's a very timely message.

I agree with everyone here. Stop the commercialism.

Taking a stand, one anti-shopper at a time!

I think if it's done right, if those gifts are given in love, in rememberance of who we are celebrating ...then it can be a good thing. Christmas is a happy, giving time. I buy gifts for the people I love and we give to charities...I don't make a big deal of it, and tell lots of people. I don't put up a billboard of what I'm DOING with that money, I'm just paying forward something to someone else.

I love Santa, I love baby Jesus, I love this time of year where I feel like we are "All human beings to one another", I choose to celebrate it with gifts for the people I love...and gifts to those who might not have a merry Christmas.

however, i love the way you wrote it, I love the wording you chose. I do agree that the greed needs to be taken out of Christmas.

SO glad I stopped by.
