I don’t know if there’s a debate here, I’m just curious. What if people just stopped all the rituals associated with Christmas? Yes, I’m aware that Christmas borrowed a lot of rituals, and I’m aware that you don’t have to be a specific religion to celebrate and practice them… Let’s just say the whole consept is done with and New Years is the biggest holiday after Thanksgiving.
I understand that Chrismas Tree sellers would be out of business, but there’s more to it than that. If you live in a place where there’s shitty weather that time of year, I would expect it’s impact would be catastrophic. Very few people where I live wouldn’t be out-and-about unless they had an excuse to be.
I guess I’m wondering what the total outcome would be.
