Almost x-mas… A time for peace, light and cheesy tunes. Time to spend with your loved ones – family, friends, pets… Everyone talks about charity, humanity, compassion…

Everyone? No, not everyone. There’s a small tribe of ignorant people, who happen to do their x-mas shopping at my local supermarket. Double parked cars at the street, shopping carts filled to the max, couples rushing through the store, people fighting over the last bottle of cheap wine, arguing who was first at the counter, ignoring the queue… All they seem to care about is consumption, consumption, consumption. For them, that’s the true spirit of Christmas!

Luckily, this is only a minority. Let’s hope the ghosts of Christmas pay a visit to them Ebenezers!
