Giving Stuff

I have yet to figure out why, but every week I read The Fever Swamp over at National Review Online. One line from this week’s entry really grabbed me:

...while Christmas is about God becoming Man and divine love and all that, the “holiday season” has become almost solely about giving children stuff for the sake of giving them stuff. (emphasis in the original)

How true. Except for one thing: the “giving stuff for the sake of giving stuff” doesn’t stop with children.

You just realized this? I’ll send you some stock options for Toys R Us, heh.
