Anything But CHRISTmas

I made this piece to portray my anger at how modern society sees Christmas as a mere day of gifts, money, sales and shopping. Consumerism at it's best. Adverts flashing SALE, 50% OFF and TREAT YOURSELF THIS CHRISTMAS. What about the real reason we celebrate it? What about Jesus, the Three Kings and the Guiding Star? I can picture the pyjama brigade's faces screwed up in bemusement as I write it, completely unaware that Christmas is a day of religion and not just an excuse for a new pair of Ugg Boots or a new all black monochrome tracksuit with black trainers to match.

Let's get back to basics, eh?
