Truly I think that I am being tempted by the devil every time I go to the store. I always see something that I think Faith will look great in or that Jason needs. There is always something right there just waiting for my attention. Now they are putting out Christmas stuff already in the store. I thought Halloween was next week? And what happened to Thanksgiving? Are we not suppose to be thankful? These are the questions I ponder all the time.I started thinking about how commercialized everything is today. Not that we were poor by any means, I still remember the huge Christmas that we had.
My mother literally would break the bank to make sure we got everything we wanted. But it was never really about the presents (truly it wasn't). It was about the family being together and loving each other.The holidays being around the corner make me miss my family so much.
Don't get me wrong. I love Christmas but how commercialized is it going to get? Its out earlier and earlier every year. I think we need to go back to the traditional Christmas again. Christmas is about being with the ones you love. I love decorating my house for Christmas for the kids. I love going sledding if we can. Making cookies. Singing Christmas Carols. But all this commercializing is just too much in my eyes.
This is my personal opinion. What's yours?
