Consumers

This week I saw a flyer for a local farm’s ‘Christmas market’. Entry fee is set at £5 and from what I can gather it was a sellout last year. What do you get for your entry fee? The chance to buy things from the stalls set up there. Good grief! Has the Western world gone mad in our frenzy to buy things? The vast majority of purchasers aren’t even religious ,so why is there this compulsion to spend, spend, spend because it’s Christmas?

    Why indeed? Its quite obscene. This year seems to have seen various Black Friday sales over here copied from our stateside friends, shoppers are practically killing each other to get their hands on cheap tellys etc Makes me sick!
