I Want It, I Want It, I Want It Now!!!

All I want for Christmas are calls from family out of state and time with local friends and family. The holiday seems so blurred by materialism. Plus I want an IWatch and a virtual reality headset. Oh and a Tesla. But that’s all. I don’t want to be like greedy people.

I’m not going to be cliché by saying that gift giving overrides the true meaning of the holiday. I’ll just say that giving and getting presents sort of serve as camouflage for what the holiday represents for many people. Wait, did I just…?

I enjoy the gift exchange process. And by that I mean hitting the stores on December 26th to exchange all of the junk I received and can’t stand and getting what I really wanted in the first place. People just don’t listen!!

Like I was saying, Christmas is about the birth of The Christ and spending time with family members with whom I can stand . I don’t waste any time at all on people who always seem to find a way to ruin the day for everyone. How am I supposed to enjoy my new virtual reality gizmo when the mood sours? How is everyone else supposed to enjoy the popcorn tins I gave each of them?

It’s a wonderful time. The most wonderful if you believe the lyrics of the popular Christmas song. Don’t be the complainer that brings everybody down, man. Just chill. I can’t believe I just wrote those words.

  1. Me too! I hate the commercialization of Christmas. Why can’t people stop buying me crap I don’t need or want and listen to me when I suggest fun and useful articles, like a new Audi A 4? A nice, modest 84 inch LG TV?

  2. Back in ‘The Day’ in MAD one of Dave Berg’s series on Christmas a fellow is saying ‘Oh boy! Just what I need….’ to the most unlikely of gifts, the last panel being ‘Oh Boy! Just what I need, a present exchange counter!’
    One of the gifts was a ‘Chrome-Plated Power-Driven Swizel Stick’, I read that back in 1966 and have had a secret hankering for one ever since.
