Yeah, so i don't mean to be the freakin' Grinch who stole Christmas here but how is it that the corporate world has managed to weasel its nose into every religious/family holiday making us spend hundreds of our hard earned dollars on toys/gadgets/clothing... things that we most likely don't really need. Of course these holiday traditions have been going on for quite some time and don't get me wrong here, i love Christmas and all but holy shit are we all totally oblivious to this? The fact that these holidays take aim at the children is probably the funniest part about it all. I mean... Santa, Easter Bunny, Ghosts and Goblins, its all a ploy to lure the children in. It's GENIUS!!! Once the kiddies are locked in to those cross hairs, Kablamo there goes another couple hundo.

We end up lying to our children first off, we get them to believe in and look up to false holiday caricatures such as Santa Clause only to one day have their spirits broken by the harsh reality that there is no such person.

In the aftermath of all this holiday cheer we end up blowing ridiculous amounts of cash and its the corporations that laugh their asses off all the way to the bank. While the corporations get richer the real Santa Clause which is us, the friggin' suckers who bought into this shit in the first place are left with our pockets turned out like the god damn monopoly man. We then end up in loads of dept which lasts until the next holiday. I'm not bitter really... in Who-Ville they say that froid's heart grew 3 sizes that day. Peace out Peeps!
