For weeks, the shops have been full of Christmas decorations and sales.

Celebrating the time of year where we eat too much, drink too much and buy material crap we don’t really need.

Why?

Because that’s what we do. Isn’t it?

Is it?

This year, consider why you do what you do, more than tradition, deeper than repetition.

Consider what really matters – who you want to spend your time with, and what you really want to do.

And think about why you’re buying the junk you’re buying.

Does Uncle Barry really need another set of handkerchiefs?

Does Cousin Lisa really want tome stinky lavender bath salts she won’t ever use?

It’s Christmas consumption time already.

But you don’t have to join the pack.
