The holidays are approaching and all look forward to family gatherings, celebrations, gifts, ornaments and Christmas lights everywhere. And it seems that Christmas starts to manifest itself every year earlier, let’s just begun November appears supply Christmas accessories in shops and supermarkets. For many this is a time of joy, but in contrast we also know that it is a time of an almost uncontrollable outpouring of our savings. In many homes Christmas means a major looting to the Pocket, often almost impossible to avoid due to the psychological conditions that it imposes on us society. A reality of the celebrations of Christmas, new year and Kings, is that one has or may create the opportunity to reunite with family and friends, spend a very good time having fun even though most of the time this leads to catastrophic consequences for our family finances. Worldwide spending on gifts and accessories, even many poor families feel very bad knowing that they won’t be able to buy those toys so has by his sons. The system is made that way, those who have a lot of money also spent much money and this includes the holiday season. The children of wealthy families request toys beautiful (and usually expensive), and their parents buy them without much thought.
The most humble families bear the brunt are, their children also want cute toys, those same of those who have seen the advertisement on TV, or in the Toyshop sash, or a college roommate has. But this case is very different from the previous, sometimes parents do a considerable economic sacrifice to be able to buy that toy, even at times can’t afford it and both child and parents suffer from frustration. In either of the two cases I have mentioned, the domestic economy loses out, in the latter case than in the first because you lose something more than money, but ultimately these festivals are a real looting to the Pocket.
