Christmas advertising comes earlier and earlier every year. So I decided to jump in as the tinsel starts appearing on the shelves and while pumpkins have yet to be carved. The advertising starts as soon as the Halloween costumes are purchased. I have even seen some on display in August this year.
Many children start with such simple wishes for Christmas, and as the hype ramps up the closer we get to Christmas day, the bigger the wish list gets.
The real meaning of the day often gets lost in the many desires of gifts we can get our children because we love to see the delight in our children’s eyes as they open gifts. As parents shop, the commercials steep children’s minds with more items that they simply must have. We simply must get to see their faces beaming on Christmas morning.
The wish in Davids’ Christmas Wish was a simple one, just a pretty goldfish is all David wants. It will prove to be the most difficult gift that his parents would ever provide on this Christmas.
