Everyone loves Christmas, some more than others, but every year it seems Christmas keeps popping up earlier and earlier in television commercials, newspaper ads and in store displays. Oh- and lets not forget about the Christmas music playing in stores the day after Halloween! Christmas has become such a commercial holiday. It's not supposed to be that way.
We all know the true meaning of Christmas, and it's not about putting up a big tree and loading tonnes of presents under it. We all know when Christmas is, no one is going to forget it and companies are NOT going to go bankrupt because people didn't do their Christmas shopping in September!
I would like to see that it becomes a law here in Canada that companies are not allowed to advertise for Christmas until AFTER November 11th, Remembrance Day.
We need to Remember what our Veterans and Serving Members have done for us, the sacrificing they have made for our freedom here in Canada. It is completely disrespectful to our Veterans to give more attention to something that isn't even the true meaning of Christmas!
Remembrance Day is a holiday for us and it deserves to have just as much recognition. It is an extremely important day for us Canadians.
