Bloody Christmas Shopping !

I despise what the Christmas season has become. It always was a big consumer orgy in my lifetime, but it's completely out of hand, now. The tawdry displays of useless shit are appearing in September. As a kid in New York, the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade in late November was the 'official' beginning of all the hooha- much more civilised... Must go to the West End to-day for a brief burst of shopping. I'm lucky;I've hardly any family, and only a few other 'duty' gifts to deal with. Every year I say I'm not going to get caught up in this exploitative whirl at all, but I always give in ,a little...I'm famed as a curmudgeonette anyway, and I don't want people thinking I'm downright... mean...I can't bloody afford this nonsense, but still feel compelled to conform to some degree;the more fool moi. Grumble...
