I am allergic to Christmas before December. It gives me an emotional rash. Rubs me the wrong way. It also seems incredibly disrespectful to not allow Remembrance day the space and consideration it deserves for people who sacrificed their lives within our lifetime in favour of someone who died over 2000 years ago (and wasn’t even born in December). Hell, for all the obsession and piousness, no one actually knows when that guy was born. And can we give his white washed image a rest? That person was not white. I’m sure if we found a way to commercialize Remembrance day, sell occasion specific food and wares, make it fun and sexy then it would be more celebrated. Did the people of the past die so that we could celebrate Commercialism?
