I have to agree with you: Christmas has not only lost its religious meaning, but also its magic touch and atmosphere (perhaps I'm just getting old). On the other hand it seems it is no longer the consumerist orgy it used to be, but perhaps that's just a side effect of global recession.Originally posted by Kakuzen
Many Christians in my country seem to have completely forgotten the religious meaning of Christmas, and the holiday has become all about gathering with family and friends in order to enjoy the food, the gifts and the football game. As a Buddhist living in the USA... I must tell you that I have no qualms with a secular Christmas. Yet insane consumerism during this season is not something that I would easily condone... if not for the children's joy.
