Christmas fever is widespread as the orgy of spending takes hold.
Ordinarily sane people are in-debting themselves to a year ahead of pay-back as they tread wearily around shops filled with Chinese imports!
Some years ago I made a decision to opt out of mainstream.
I had come to the conclusion that much of what I lived by was the result of not questioning, but merely going along with everyone else.
Now, I must point out that once one begins to question the status quo, all sorts of issues raise their Medusa-like heads…religion, education, government, consumerism, et al!
Every aspect of how I lived, and what moved me, was called to the fore of my interrogation.
In much the same way as I gave up eating meat, smoking and spending our civilisation out of recession, I gave up Christmas.
Christmas became something older and gentler for me…it morphed into Midwinter.
