no...i insulate myself against that....i refuse to let the commerialism be the focus of how my family and i celebrate Christmas. because it is about so much more than rushing to the store on Black Friday or Wednesday or cyber Monday...keeping focused on the joy and the opportunity to give thanks once again for so many blessings, be they ever so humble or not.
taking time to share with others that are unknown to us is also another way to deflect that which would cause us to 'bah humbug' if we allowed it.
to soak in the 'once in a lifetiemes' that happen is another way to refcocus. My grandbaby is enjoying Christmas this year...the magic and the wonder...Santa and the Polar Express and all of it...the wonder and joy....shines on his face and in his eyes.
