The true spirit of Christmas is in “loving” and to “do good for others”, ” thinking of” and “helping the less fortunate”.
However, many of today’s children, weaned on luxury goods and gadgets, consider themselves as the “less fortunates” and thus are on the “receiving” rather than the “giving” site. And are easily disappointed… and crossed if they don’t get the expected $$$ gift.
Am I exaggerating? I truly hope so.
But if you had searched Twitter for popular expensive gits “car”, “i-pad” or “i-phone” like comedy writer Jon Hendren (@fart) did, you had seen numerous dissatisfied tweets of extremely spoiled kids and adolescents:
The tweets have even been compiled in a song by Jonathan Mann, the “Song a Day Man“. After seeing the tweets it should be no surprise that it is called “WTF?! I wanted an iPhone!”
It makes me kind a sad. It is quite an anti-Christmas attitude.
The kids in this video below have every right to be disappointed though. (via Mashable)
