You really capture winter here. My personal favorite line (for several reasons) is "commercialized Christmas."
Jesse Friesen - Over 30 days ago
Yes, Christmas has become lost under piles of price tags.

Absolutely. Black Friday, all that BS. Just an opportunity for the big guys to make big bucks and screw small businesses. I like that America made the Saturday after Black Friday "Small Business Saturday" in 2010.

Definitely. The corporate world has a dollar sign on every emotion and belief. I'm not big on politics and even I can see it has become a big mess that at this point is out of garbage bags.

I feel like it's a lot different in Canada. A lot less bipartisanship. In the States there are a bunch of idiots that call themselves the Tea Party and it really does seem like they try to destroy the country. Luckily not enough people take them seriously for them to have any real influence on things other than making conservatives look bad.

Canada as a whole is a great country to live in. I'm not sure what it is like in America. When it comes to politics, I am naive because I have never had much interest other than laughing at the absurdity of fashion and celebrity culture, as well as over the top consumerism.
