Debt addicts!!! - A nation of Stigs!

BBC: Christmas gift spending 'to soar'

Britons are forecast to spend almost 17bn on gifts this Christmas, according to a survey by Deloitte, with average spending set to rise by 22%.
Clothes, jewellery and MP3 players are set to prove the most popular items, particularly among 16-24 year olds. The real meaning of Christmas has officially been snubbed out by retailers and the media! Baaahhh humbug!

My goodness - welcome to the world of crystal ball reporting. Maybe they could tell us the lottery numbers to. This is a synical attempt to generate a feel-good attitude in the run up to Christmas and will only benefit business at the expense of additional debt for the consumer. Quite frankly the BBC should not be getting involved in this propaganda, but sadly, as we all know, the BBC has gone rapidly downhill in recent years and no longer serves the public.

You have to be careful what the real meaning of Christmas really is or how it came about. Do a bit of searching and you'll find it has entirely Pagan origins hijacked by Christianity. The giving of present at the Winter Solstice occurred well before 350AD when Pope Julius 1st said Christ was born on the 25th December. Even Father Christmas's red coat was created by Coco Cola.

For me, the spirit of this Christmas will be vodka.
