I thoroughly agree. It’s horrible what’s been done to the true meaning of the holidays. Values have been drowned out by profit. My husband and I were reading the paper this morning and it’s stuffed full of Cyber Monday ads. It kills the novelty of reading the newspaper and learning about what’s going on locally around us, especially when we live out in the middle of nowhere for the sole intentions of escaping it all.
