The Collectible Guru Responds to Patrick Moore

*****ATTENTION PLEASE, YOU MUST READ THE FULL STORY AT THE FOLLOWING SITE URL: http://health.yahoo.com/experts/theprinciples/3287/stopping-shopping-at-christmas;_ylt=Ai.G2IgGKTgq8zYfTaxGicRTis8F?cin=392#comment I AM IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH THIS PERSON, I JUST FELT THE NEED TO SCREAM!!***

On a happier note, I believe this post is very near "perfect"

First of all, I believe you poorly misread the story "The Gift of The Magi". Those people did not give each other gifts just because they loved each other! They sacrificed for their love! They gave up their most prized possessions, not to show love(they already knew they loved each other), but to show how much they would sacrifice for one another. Isn't that, after all, the true meaning of love? Giving all of yourself and your possessions to another?


I believe that gifts should be given on Christmas. Either homemade tangible items, bought tangible items, gifts of adoration and trustworthiness, or simply giving something that you truly thought about to show your love of another (like a kiss). Some people buy gifts, some people make them. Some people are just together during the holidays chatting, eating, and having a good time. No matter how people decide to celebrate the holidays, who are you to put them down?


When was the last time you found/made that perfect gift, Mr. Scrooge, and watched the face of the person you gave it to light up because you found "just" the right gift for them? When was the last time you took time out of your busy bashing schedule to think about someone else for more than the time it takes you to do them a favor or shake their hand? My guess is, you have been damaged in the past by the beautiful holidays that we celebrate. After all, with no Christmas, where is Christ? Weren't the giving of gifts begun with his birth?


People all over the world have a few days that they celebrate together. Many celebrate it differently. Many celebrate it the same. How you do it is up to you. There is no need for you to attempt to press your hatred of a beautiful occasion on the world. So, I say to you, Mr. Scrooge, "Bah! Humbug!" and Happy Holidays!

Love you all!
