Celebrating Christmas only changes waistlines and bank balances.

The Christmas – pseudo religious for the majority – festivity has come and gone for another year and the world with all its problems is almost – I use this qualification as the optimist in me hopes that somewhere there will be change – still the same.

There is still avarice.

There is still hunger and homelessness in all parts of the world.

There are still religious bigots spouting views as to how we should all conduct our lives; whilst religious based acts of violence continue.

There is still cruelty by mankind against human and animal victims.

There is still inequality shown against birthright, gender, skin colour, nationality and opinions.

There is still a lack of freedom and democracy.

So what is the big deal about the celebration of Christ's Mass? What difference will it make to the future? How will the world and its inhabitants change?

Does celebrating Christmas only change waistlines and bank balances?
