Last minute shoppers have been cursing the Three Wise Men for starting a trend of buying gifts for Christmas causing untold misery to thousands of adults across the globe over the last 2000 plus years.
One shopper said, “This is utter bullshit. I’m a single 35-year-old girl and here I am buying gifts for my friend’s kids every goddam Christmas and getting nothing in return. These kids don’t remember who gave what and every year I am reintroduced to the kids so they clearly don’t know who I am even. Some of these parents have the cheek of giving the gifts to someone else after Christmas. This is after I had to take leave and spend 30 hours in the shops trying to buy the perfect gift.”
“These ‘wise guys’ could have just said a prayer and given their blessing without handing over gifts. What’s a kid going to do with Gold, Myrrh, and Frankincense anyway? He would have preferred a rattle or a cuddly toy. Or they should have just given Mary a nice bottle of wine which she would have appreciated after being sober for nine months,” the shopper added.
