Yay Commercialization!

I'm with Dennis Prager in his recent article "In defence of the 'commercialism' of Christmas."

People who don't buy Christmas or Chanukah gifts aren't particularly noble; they are usually particularly cheap.

Snort. Prager is right on - while many people who make these complaints are well intentioned, they are throwing the baby out with the bath water here (and as Prager makes a strong argument for, it is not even altogether clear that the bath water is bad to begin with). Of course, I think many who make these complaints do so for far more sinister motives as well - as another prong in the attack against Christmas in particular, and faith in general, which seems every year to get louder and more obnoxious. To them, I'll quote Laura Ingraham: Shut up and sing (Christmas carols, that is).
