If your Christmas was ruined because you didn’t get a package, you are not celebrating Christmas for the true reason.

If all it means to you is a day for getting presents then you are missing the real meaning of the day.

Jesus is the reason for the season.

Think of all the people who didn’t get anything at all.

Same story as yesterday except they added, “UPS won’t say how many packages”.

I’m not a religious man and even I can see the wisdom in Dalevilles comment.

Here’s a tip for all those who didn’t get their “stuff”. Shop earlier or get over it.

Why is no one reporting that Amazon failed to manage the expectations of its customers? Who is their right or left mind would tell a customer on December 22nd that they could expect to receive any package before Christmas? Amazon attempted to inflate its numbers and it did it at the expense of its customers. UPS is the patsy.

My package was late. Amazon gave me a full refund. That’s gotta hurt UPS too.

That is so Dumb to say.

For instance, what if the Wise Men were late to greet the baby Jesus. Would not be the same. “Giving” and “Receiving” ON Time, is in the true spirit of Jesus. What if Jesus was late to your Resurrection? You see, time means something.

Agree with Daleville. Commercialism isn’t the real meaning of Christmas.

I’m somewhat surprised though. The media usually makes a big deal about this type of year being the shortest shopping days from Thanksgiving to Christmas.

While the 25th always falls on the same day, the 4th Thursday fell on the last week of the month, making it the shortest shopping season.

I didn’t follow the news to closely, but how people didn’t realize they had one less week to get stuff amazes me.
