Consumerism, consumerism, and consumerism.
I can't stand how corperate Christmas has become. I honestly could do without presents, and shopping at the malls for presents loses its appeal fast. Everyone does the last minute rush to the mall, and any friendly atmosphere that is SUPPOSED to be celebrated during Christmas, becomes a snarling grab match, trying to buy the last item on the shelf. You can do your shopping early, but then it feels like copping out (or at least to me).....but then you're stuck going during the rush.
Don't get me wrong, I like Christmas, but being in the malls becomes tedious.
