Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse (the end of humankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt.) Check out his trailer below on you tube :
I watched this documentary with complete fascination and total belief. Although I am not a religious person and not a church goer, I do agree with Reverend Billy and his crusade. Click the following link for more of his videos:

Although I am a Dominatrix lifestyle and professional and most Domme are about give Me, give Me, give Me, like I said I like the give Me too. But I just don't agree with how this time of the year some people become so desperate, dangerous, depressed, suicidal, lonely and too expectant. When I was much younger, I like most kids had high expectations to receive gifts because I thought Christmas was about giving thanks to the Creator, giving gifts for children and not all the consuming. Now as I have gotten older and wiser I must say it's has grown to be pretty sad and not all the same joy as before. It's been done to death and you can only spend so much without it becoming an annoying pressure to make sure you shop till you drop, run out of money or in debt.
I also would sometimes get annoyed as a child when I would see some adults get an attitude and not even speak to someone because they did not receive a gift from them. Like I said, I thought Christmas was about the Creator and the kids, the spirit of the holidays etc... so when the adults would get an attitude and argue about not getting their expectant gifts, I started to view the ideas of Christmas with a whole different light.
I am not a bah humbug scrooge by far, I still enjoy everything that I love about Christmas that I mentioned in the first paragraph above. It's just when you really "see", not just "look" at Reverend Billy's videos you will get My true meaning.
I am a appreciative person and don't take My life, living, experiences, wisdom and beliefs
for granted. I also have a very strong personal connection and love for the Creator and all that I am allowed to "borrow" while I am here on earth. There is nothing wrong with moderation especially when you can truly love to appreciate it and all it can teach you.
Christmas has turned into this beast that stalks people every year and it's sad. But I still find the beauty in it that is still not quite lost. Thank God for that!
From the lines of the famous movie called "The Grinch who stole Christmas":
"It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes and bags!"
Be safe, and really cherish what is most important!
