    is it too commercialised?
    definately!!
    it's suppose to be a happy time of year, but most of the people i know are miserable at christmas because they think they 'can't afford it'!
    it shouldn't be about how much money you can spend but just bein together with your friends and family (corny i know).
    I've got a 6 year old nephew and i don't think he even knows what christmas is...to him it's just about getting loadsa new toys n toffees!

    Christmas, hmmm, considering its supposed to be a religious marking in the year and even that has become distorted as contrary to popular belief, Jesus was not born on the 25th December, it certainly is commercialised. A greater impression should be made on family values, not what gifts are being bought, who had what, whats the most expensive present you were brought this year. Kids today have enough pressure without peer pressure after christmas with the ones from less financially well off families being made to feel what they have recieved isnt enough. Isnt it more about the thought that went into the gift, not the actual amount, so what if Joe Bloggs had a PS2 with 25 games and little Jimmy down the road had a PS1 second hand with only a few games. Money can buy a lot of things, but it cant buy happiness because when the money runs out, happiness goes with it. Hell Yeah for families and friends at christmas and spent a little time and thought for those that are alone this year
