Christmas Presents

‘Wow, this is just what I wanted, thank you!’

You thought I’d bought you the watch because it was perfect for you.

Really, I’d bought it as a commentary on how we, as humans, needlessly contribute to the consumerist agenda that we half-heartedly dress as a family-friendly holiday to celebrate the birth of someone most of us don’t believe in. How, every year without fail, we imbue the spiritual skeleton of someone none of us knew so we can get a new dress, console or hi-tech blender.

But hey, I guess it’s a win-win.
