The other side of Christmas

Recently, we have finished our Christmas' holidays.
They have been some fanthastic days, without working or going to school and making a lot of celebrations with family and friends. But there is another thing which is not so great. If we make the effort of thinking about all we have bought during Christmas, we'll notify that consumerism has invaded our lives. Every day we bought a lot of stupid things and specially during Christmas. This Christian tradition, which celebrates Jesus' birthday, has become only a consumist celebration. I'm sure that nobody thinks about what really means Christmas when we are buying presents. We live in a society in which we are what we have got, things are more valuous than persons and appearances govern our minds. But really, these things will never make us better humans.
For that, I think we should think about it, because while we are buying in sales, not very far there are a lot of people who die of hunger.
