Why do people want to know other’s Christmas Lists?

19 12 2004

My Christmas list post is getting tons of people coming.  Many want to know what to ask for, for Christmas.  People – you’ve got it wrong.  Christmas is not a shopping trip.  If you can’t think of what you want, tell people.  You DON’T have to ask for something for Christmas.  Will you honestly be disappointed, if someone thought about what to get you and didn’t get you the latest, greatest dohickey? 

Here’s the Blogtrends graph for “Christmas List“.

People are SUPPOSED to give gifts out of love, affection and friendship, not a sense of duty.  Christmas didn’t become a holiday because we wanted to give gifts – It’s the celebration of the birth of Christ.  PERIOD.  No where in that sentence does it say, “and a time to try and get the latest toys and gadgets”.  Be glad you have your family and friends with you for Christmas, and anything beyond that is gravy.

(Yes, I was out shopping today and ended up a bit jaded)
