Reader upset with the commercialism of Christmas

-A A +A
By Staff

To the editor:

The day after Christmas and no holiday music on the radio. The commercial days have been justified and we now turn toward the new year. Year after year it is the same. I often wonder sometimes for what this supposedly sacred time of the year is for. Truly, Christ is not what this season seems to be about, but rather how the stores can turn a profit as the year ends. Just once more in my life I would like to see a return to the meaning of this most sacred time of year. And probably, I will not see it!
