What has happened to Christmas?

Written by Alleah Rose, The Eagle Staff Writer

What was once a celebration of family and religion has turned into a materialistic excuse to spend thousands of dollars. Once a year, people worldwide fill stress and malls in search of the best deals and the perfect gifts. Prices such as those on Black Friday are almost calling for destruction. No longer do people shop to get something nice for their families. They shop to find the greatest prices and the newest gadgets for themselves.

November 2008, a Wal-Mart worker was trampled to death by Black Friday shoppers. You’d think it was impossible that religious Christmas shoppers couldn’t see the insanity in trampling someone over for a cheap television. “Maybe it’s time for people to start getting some perspective on ‘holiday bargains’. Because this is just sick!” says Suzie-Q from wordpress.com.
