I think the problem was that things are way too over-the-top.
When I was a kid, Christmas seemed so easy. I just had to make my parents some popsicle-stick tree ornaments or something similar.
Last year, I noted that several girls in my class exchanged Christmas gifts of huge handbags and other such things.
Seems like there's a bit of room to cut out the excess.
Maybe instead of an anti-Christmas campaign, there should be a movement to get people to exchange handmade picture frames or ornaments. Probably be used just as much as the designer purses and they're a whole lot cheaper (and made with love).
Or cookies! Then at least you know they'll be used for something.

I find this just as sad as the anti-Valentine's Day movements.
Honestly, if you don't want to buy people gifts, just don't. I've done it on years I'm in a bad financial situation. And even when I do buy gifts, its for my immediate family (or a girlfriend if I have one at the time). My friends and I all agree that if one of us wants something, he can buy it his or her damn self.
Jeez, do we really need rallies and t-shirts and shit to ignore something?

On one hand, I agree that the gift buying gets out of hand.
On the other hand, that's a totally insane and idiotic idea.

Let's ban Christmas!
