Martyrs never last this long

And on the third day, he made the easter bunny, I unavoidably ducked into the mall today to pick up some medication.. Amongst the hustle and bustle were angry parents snapping at their children for being inquisitive, lethargic and bitter shop assistants who had clearly not been given enough money for what they were being put through, and.. Lastly.. What supprised me the most: An old man coming down a set of stairs.. I was smothered to the right hand side of the staircase by a flock of sugarhappy kids and their wayward parents, and a man walking down toward me who was in.. oh say his mid 60's? he snapped at me .. "Everybody knows you should keep to the left hand side" mumble mumble mumble.. people watched.. o_0

Unaffected by the verbal wrath of a complete stranger i though to myself, why do we do this every year?
The hostility among everyone is tragic.. im not a religious person at all, quite the opposite.. And perhaps this is why i cant grasp the significance of cadbury's influence on the death of christ.. I made my way out of a bookstore and eventually the mall, feeling as though i'd peered into a cesspool of humanity and was lucky to still have my shirt on..

Dont get me wrong, i dont like to be around people during the other 364 days of the year!
Holidays specifically though, seem to amplify the shallowness of our species..

Using gifts to symbolise love just doesn't seem so special anymore
