It's that time of the year again.
Rampant commercialism, flooded airports and train stations, and the same songs being played on repeat in department stores and retail stores across the country. It's Christmas time.
Recently as I progress into my early 20s, I find very little use for the holidays from an economic perspective. It has become more of a cost than a benefit - as I am now expected to purchase gifts from other people. From that point of view, why make a decision which will provide no utility to me?
I have made the decision to remain alone for the holidays, as I will not have to bear the cost of Christmas - which will save me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
Would love to hear thoughts.
