December Holiday Blues

As a result of all things gone wrong, it seems that our economy has met a downward spiral. The holidays are here and I asked myself,  Why is everyone so glum?”

I conducted a poll and here are my findings: Some people were uncertain about employment or were unemployed. Some were “broke” and could not purchase Christmas gifts or travel to be with family. Some were depressed because their loved ones were off at war, their businesses were failing and the list continues.

I always spend the month of December reflecting on the year. One of my favorite past times is watching every animated Christmas cartoon that I can before Christmas. I remember when Americans lived a modest lifestyle where family was important and people bought more of what they needed and less of what they wanted. Happiness is defined in a lot of different ways, but in my opinion if Americans spent more time being grateful for what they have and less envious about what they do not have then happiness will come automatically.

Christmas should have never been commercialized. I think the true spirit of Christmas is and will always prevail so be happy and be merry.
