My face turns into fifty shades of red
As, troubled, I look at the price tag.
When did Christmas get to cost so much?
Shouldn’t the focus be on peace, happiness and such?
This weekend, Trifextra asked us to write about our thoughts on the holiday season. My thoughts on the subject are plenty, I love the holidays, as I have explained at length in Christmas is Here. But now, with Christmas being so close, and my wallet having had the worst spasm since I bought my apartment, I am rethinking the whole season. This post is actually inspired by The Gift of Giving…Not! A poem which I so inconveniently posted yesterday!
Yes, we should focus on peace and happiness, but this is not so easy.
Too many distractions and heartache in this world…
That was definitely me this year and last. ): I wouldn’t bother with it at all if not for my much younger siblings and niece and nephew.
Same here, too many cousins to think of… Thanks for stopping by.
You’re right! It can be very pricey!
Yup, everything is commercialised nowadays. Thanks for reading.
Ya, nothing like the holidays to remind you how empty your pockets are! Love the first line 🙂
This one is so perfect. Can relate it with almost any festival
🙂 thank you, yes you really can: St Valentine’s day is soon and it would fit in just as well…
was one of the shades of red stress? yeah been there too – too often 🙂
It is stress and the effort not to burst out crying 🙂
Christmas comes with a pretty high peace tag! 😀
Nice play on words, good one!
My pocketbook sings, “Amen, sister” along with my soul! Fifty shades of red – a very merry ho, ho ho to that!
HAHA 😀 thanks for commenting you really made me laugh!
Agreed. Nice post.
Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂 All the best …
Christmas blessings to you and yours, Sandra
Same to you Barbara from my heart 🙂
When we were strapped for cash . . . we made gifts from the heart instead of shopping at the mall. Everyone loves cookies, right? 😀
ooohh yes that is a great idea!!
It has become to much about money. What happened to enjoying the family?
