55 Flash Friday

Today is 55 Flash Friday. Want to join in? Write a story - 55 words no more no less and let the G-man know. http://g-man-mrknowitall.blogspot.com/



Upbeat music…songs proclaiming Santa, reindeers, figgy pudding…..crowds of shoppers gawking in store windows….loaded down with heavy parcels and bags….…glittery decorations adorning stairs, shops, windows. 30 shopping days left until Christmas. A sense of panic, fervor to buy, spend….
Peace. Freedom, salvation….Jesus born in obscurity. Few knew of His birth. Few recognized God’s gift. Few understood…

Amazing the commercialization of this and so many other holidays. True meanings for all become obscured for the younger generations. You've captured that well in 55 words.

Commercialism gone wild. Who knew our economy would be so dependent upon a brith celebration and yet treat it so poorly. Great message. My 55 is HERE.
