Im not poor, but they invited me around as their friend, refused to accept any money from me for the food, and made sure I didnt spend more than a few pounds on each in presents.
That christmas, I learnt something about pride
|Quoting Cairo (Reply 4):|
"Christmas Spirit" in America is defined as decorating your house and yard, perhaps even your car, with as much crap as possible; and of course buying your family/friends expensive gifts that they don't need.
It's all bs --- all that money for decorations, a tree, worthless gifts, etc... should be spent on the poor if it is the spirit of Christ they are honoring.
|Quoting HAWK21M (Thread starter):|
I remember in my tough times as a kid.We used to build a crib & a small false tree. use candles & sing christmas carols together.A few sweets were made at home.Those were peaceful & happy times,although I always wished I could get big presents like my friends did.Today when I can,I don't feel like it anymore. Weird.
But thinking of those days still bring back good memories of Christmas.

Out here The Majority people still link Christmas to Santa Claus rather than the Birth of Christ.
