Christmas is coming. Italy is a catholic country. This holidays are lived very intensely here. Every person is preparing for them. Today we went shopping to the local supermarket. It was full of people hunting for some great deals, buying literally every thing possible. Such consuming behaviour!
We bought enough for a week living for our family and had a full trolley and we were the ones with less stuff on it.
I understand that the holiday is important but, according to me, there is no reason to grab every possible thing. I prefer to receive a gift that is useful to me and do not like to waste the cash on something that is not going to be used.
The right gift for the right person = money well spent.
