Christmas is a powerful season
It had the power to bring two sides out of the trenches to play football, it has the power to stop the wheels of industry, and close the shops for one-day at least. It has the power to bring families together.
It has the power of hope, what will Santa bring the little children.
It’s a weapon too, if you don’t behave Santa will only bring you coal.
But equally (I’m not religious ftr) we forget the meaning of Christmas in our commercial world. Adverts start for Christmas in late September, they even advertise save for next Christmas when this one hasn’t arrived.
