Christmas Spirit

Ah the spirit of Christmas, giving of yourself, helping your fellow man, and altogether being charitable and generous. Maybe the people who trampled a Walmart employee to death need a little refresher course on what Christmas really means.

How could anyone be so caught up in getting a bargain that they not only don't stop to help someone who has been knocked down by their fellow bargain hunters, but they themselves step on the fallen man to get to the deals? I think a few of us need to sit down and watch It's a Wonderful Life or something to remind us what this holiday season is really all about. I mean did these people really believe that there was going to be such a good deal that it was worth throwing away common courtesy, and compassion for others just to make sure they had a chance to save a few dollars?

I guess it's just a reminder for myself of why I do as much shopping online as possible. I like to see the best in people, and frankly there isn't a lot of good to be seen in the rush of holiday shoppers.

I think Dr Suess may have said it best...

grinch "And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

"Welcome, Christmas, bring your cheer. Cheer to all Whos far and near. Christmas Day is in our grasp so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas Day will always be just as long as we have we. Welcome Christmas while we stand, heart to heart and hand in hand.
"

Oh, I so agree! I've two posts along this line on my blog, Aria'z Ink Holidays Are No Vacation and Did'ja Do Black Friday?
I am so glad to no be the only one seeing the disgraceful attitude of holiday shoppers, the rudeness, the callousness towards our fellow man. It's sickening. That a young man could be killed in the line of duty--AT WALMART is unbelievable (and yet, sadly, true). It's not like the kid joined the police force or fire department. Such a horrible loss for the family, my heart goes out to them, I cannot imagine the depth of their grief.

I completely agree with you! It's so sad how people have completely materialized Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don't see how someone could be so heartless as to not help someone that they brought down. I feel for the family and my condolences go to them.
