Holly Days

Christmas is a time when things once miraculous have been turned into plasticized mass-produced re-creations whose meaning is incorporated into a wholly self-serving dogma of a Holiday of Consumerism.

Gift-giving has transcended symbolism to become both an ends and a means, a cycle of greed that takes advantage of a genuine current of goodwill and hopefulness.
