The Christmas Resistance Movement

www.xmasresistance.org is a movement that discourages the empty consumerism that surrounds christmas.

"You know holiday shopping is offensive and wasteful. You know Christmas "wish lists" and "gift exchanges" degrade the concept of giving. You know Christmas marketing is a scam, benefiting manufacturers, stores, and huge corporations, while driving individuals into debt. You know this annual consumer frenzy wreaks havoc on the environment, filling landfills with useless packaging and discarded gifts. We maintain the integrity of giving by giving spontaneously and from our hearts, rather than during a specified season
