We should learn from classic tale
I WAS watching A Christmas Carol the other evening and at the point in the film where the miserable, miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge reluctantly gives Bob Cratchit and his other workers Christmas Day off, I suddenly realised that we, as a nation, have turned into modern day Ebeneezer Scrooges.
Why? Because our seemingly incessant need for shopping has meant that shop workers only get to spend one day with their families at Christmas.
The need has become even worse this year as supermarkets are also opening on Boxing Day.
Judging by the amount of food that people were piling into the backs of their cars on Christmas Eve, I would have thought that supermarkets could stay closed until Easter without the risk of anyone starving.

I appreciate that it is part of some peoples' 'Christmas' to try to bag a bargain in the Boxing Day sales.
But really – do we need the supermarkets to be open as well?
I believe that anyone who goes into a supermarket on Boxing Day should feel totally ashamed of themselves.
