I’ve seen Christmas change over the years. It looks like Christmas has already started, at least the commercialism of it, in October! Things are way overpriced, yet people are still willing to pay and even go in debt for things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I think that if people refuse to pay the high prices, the prices will go down. Everything, including money, belongs to God. One day we will be held accountable for the way we used His money.
I’m not against Christmas. When our daughter was younger, we had a Christmas tree. It was usually decorated with dolls. One year we did use fishing lures! But when our daughter grew up, she also outgrew Christmas. Now she has a child, and she has noticed how prices have gone up in her thirty years of life.
Don’t feel pressured about the commercialism. The simplest celebration is the best and most rewarding!
