Have You Started Christmas Shopping Yet?

By bloggerexpert On December 16, 2009 Under General

I ask this question because regardless of where the economy is or how good the stock market is or hasn’t been the idea of the Christmas season and gift-giving hasn’t seemingly been affected at all. I wonder if this was also the case during the great depression? Of course gifts don’t always have to come from a store and with the advent of easy credit almost non-existent you can very easily come to the place of understanding that maybe this is where we should stay. Before the TV was popular the idea of keeping up with the Joneses wasn’t in vogue because of the lack of communication. But after the TV became common place then Madison avenue quickly started using it to sell us on the idea of all the things we NEEDED to have. Of course society quickly added in social proof and the rest if how we ended up here!
