PostSubject: The comercialization of holidays by corporations.   Fri Mar 06, 2009 2:15 am

It seems like all of the holidays have lost their meanings. Who here still knows what easter originaly was? And it has nothing to do with a giant bunny or picking up eggs containing candy. Christmas has been turned into something very different than what it used to be. Today, it's a time to buy your family and friends overpriced gifts in order to not look selfish. And they acualy raise prices around that time! The only people benifiting from all of this are the fat greedy lards at the heads of the major corperations. Halloween has been fully comericalised. It used to be a harvest festival. Look at what happened to it! Almost all of the major holidays (atleast in the US) are comercialised.

Both Easter and Christmas had as much to do with Christ as my ass. I assume that's what you meant.

Haloween wasnt the best example. Ive never heard of it being a Harvest festival, it was to scare away demons.

If it was a harvest festival, we essentially harvest candy.

Problem is, we don't really care, and it has lost his religious meaning for most of the people, it's just an excuse to celebrate and party.

Jesus spoke. Srlsy, I agree. Christmas is just a bloody excuse to party, so, I don't see the problem with corporate "domination" of this ex-religious day. Vodka, Vodka, gimmie more Vodka ! With Turkey and Rice !

Capitalism foments the commercialization of everything so what's the big fuzz about Holidays being commercialized?

Any excuse to party. That's why I don't get why peolpe get upset over, say, a gay pride parade. What? They have an issue with drunk topless chicks making out in the street and partying? We should have MORE pride parades. Any excuse to party.

Yeah but it's public and it blocks the streets and not the majority of the people are gay, but the majority of the people celebrate the ''christian holydays'' (well for my part of the world) So yeah that's how it works.

There's a reason I asked two months ago how everyone's "bastardised pagan solstice ritual" was.
