The Big Fuss

It’s a world festival with deep roots in the ancient past. It’s a commercialized festival with religious overtones. It’s a season in which shops are bursting with goodies and the streets are teeming with shoppers and window shoppers and, well, confidence tricksters as well. Radio and television stations broadcast distinctive mellifluous festive songs and commercials. Religious men, from street preachers to televangelists, shout from the rooftops the birth of the king and the upcoming commemoration of his birth. Images of the jolly old fellow, Father Christmas, decorate the fronts of shops and feature in TV ads, dressed, as always, in his red and white fur coat with a white beard to match.  Homes and offices are overflowing with provisions and presents. It’s the Christmas festivity, and the atmosphere tells it.
