Christmas advertisements fail to reflect holiday realities
Michael Friant, Staff Writer • December 19, 2022

While advertisements and movies can continue promoting joyous holiday moments, they should also incorporate the less fortunate aspects of the holidays. Due to the lack of the former in media, many are unfortunately instilled with a sense of shame and guilt if their situations do not fit the Hollywood mold.

What makes me happy now is making Christmas special for others. It’s not just about getting gifts but giving people things and seeing them react to that. I have a sister, I like to spoil her, and it’s a great time to give back to my parents. As kids we couldn’t give our parents things and now that I’m more mature and can afford things, I like to show my appreciation for them by making it a nice Christmas.
