My uncle is a postman....soo Im helping him send letters from "santa" to a bunch of kids who wrote in.
Im sooo shocked with how much these kids are asking for....and a lot of these letters basically say;
I want a doll, pony, tamagotchi ect.
Like theres nothing like "merry christmas", or "ive been a good girl this year" or "im looking forward to seeing my family this year" or anything....Its making me a little sad..
I guess its time for me to fully admit that the spirit of this holiday has been lost, all to mass marketing and consuming. It makes me kinda sad.....When my kid is old enough to send these letters, I am letting him choose 1 thing that he really wants, to ask for...not because im afraid he will look greedy...but because I would rather he focus on telling "santa" about his accomplishments, and excitements about seeing family, eating turkey, building a snowman, ect. rathar than demanding a 20 item list.
I just thought I would share my feelings on this.
