As a nation, have we lost the meaning of Christmas?  Have we become too focus on the indulgence of material things?  And what are we teaching our children?

Walmarts around the country did everything they could to control crowds on Black Friday and many failed miserably.  Some evewn put up mazes and hired extra security and people still acted like animals.

As a parent, I certainly understand wanting to make sure your child has what he or she desires for Christmas and at the best possible price.  I get that.  But to stampede and hurt others in the process, in my opinion, loses the entire meaning of such a sacred holiday.
