It’s beginning to look a lot like that old end-of-year scam season again

17 Dec

Do you recall the Xmasses of yore when families gathered round a blazing log fire and exchanged small gifts of oranges or maybe an apple if you were lucky, while outside was a snowy Winter wonderland with robins singing among the berries of the holly tree? Nah! Me neither it’s always been a greedy money grabbing time of flog them a pile of unwanted dross and make them feel guilty if they don’t join in the ‘Festive Fun’. As everything is ‘done by computer’ these days why not invent an app (I think that’s the word) that will virtually exchange your presents from one machine to another, no actual goods will be harmed by this transaction as only money will move from your account to the dealer’s. Then you can take pictures of yourself smiling as you ‘unpack’ your ‘gift’ and you can share your delight with millions of others by the magic of social networks. Awesome! Oh hang on, I think that’s already happening …

    Playmobil does advent calendars?

    This is kind of a time of year I'd rather just get through as opposed to celebrate.
