  • Christmas was way too commercial YEARS ago. That doesn't mean I have to let MY Christmas be that way. We celebrate the important things for the holidays; family, love, peace, charity...

  • Yes it is more about businesses making money than Christmas. I still try to celebrate it like normal with my family. I also make sure I keep reminding them the true meaning behind it.

  • It has become way too commercialized. After working in retail for years, I had to get out. Nothing kills your Christmas spirit faster than a job in retail.

  • i'll be done with it when the kids outgrow it. For now I'm just going to enjoy that fun special-ness that comes with kids and Christmas.

    When the boys outgrow it, it won;t be a big deal again until we have grandkids

  • When has it not been commercialized? Oh, maybe about 80 years ago? It's just the way it is. It's up to you how you choose to celebrate it.
