Christmas commercialized or Nah

Hey hey hey, what’s up guys ? It’s a lovely day isn’t it.

Can you feel the Christmas love or is it all just dull ? Well well, it’s the 9th day of the creative count down meaning Christmas is tomorrow, the day we’ve all been waiting for.

So I have a question for you. Is Christmas now a commercialized holiday ?

Meaning is Christmas now a profit oriented or a holiday designed mainly for financial gain. Well my answer is yes

I feel like these days, most especially business men and women focus more on gaining profits during the festive season than even celebrating it. But I wouldn’t blame them, these days everyone is focus on making money and being successful that we make due with ever little opportunity we get.

Christmas being commercialized isn’t a problem rather it becomes a problem when we tend to loose focus on the actual reason for the celebration cause we want to focus of something else.

Christmas entails lots of money if we decide to take another approach, we get presents, decorations, food, drinks all these. It’s time for money to be spent and retailers use this ti an advantage ( who would blame them, it’s their source of income). The issue of Christmas being commercialized isn’t a recent news, it’s being on going for centuries and it keeps evolving and evolving.

How ever, Christmas being commercialized isn’t anyone’s fault, things cost money. Christmas trees cost money, decorations cost money, they don’t just fall out of the sky, food and soo on. These things are bound to be expensive this time of year ( demand and supply).

Hence with this, prices of goods and service either increase or reduce. It’s either financial gain or lose.

Although Christmas may seem commercialized, it’s important to note that, Christmas is about love,kindness, giving, happiness, family and soo much more. It’s important to always remember the true meaning of Christmas and why exactly it’s been celebrated.

let’s focus on the joy it brings and how ever the joy comes whether through financial gain or spending time with the family, showing love to others etc..

The Christmas season has come to mean the period when the public plays Santa Claus to the merchants.
