The Holidays are over. It is still cold out but there are no commercials for Christmas or Hanukkah. Not that there ever are for Hanukkah. And Americans sure are glad it is over. Why do you ask? Well I assume you’re asking because you are not an American, in which case La Migra is on their way. But it is because the obligation to be charitable is now over.
The holiday season is notoriously known for it’s high rate of volunteerism. Soup kitchens are so overflown with volunteers that they don’t even know what to do with everyone. Donations to the Salvation Army and Good Will are higher than at any other time. There is even a saying “It is better to give than to receive.” What kind of idiocracy is that?
Well now that the holiday season is in the past, ninety percent of Americans say that “they are SUPER glad they don’t have to give anymore.” Americans have so little of their own with such a poor economy anyways. Why should we be giving out money to every person with a red bucket and a bell? Of course ask me that again in eleven months and I will be telling you to give to charities or die.
