You compared that with the Superbowl

My comparison of the Donald Duck special and the Superbowl was intended to show the strong level of correlation of one "established and closely followed routine in America" to another. Again, I wasn't literally

( I hope at least) amuch different point. Simply, since the issue with it being the same show year after year has nothing to do the previous comparison, I started another line of inquiry but still keep eveything within the same theme. Call me crazy (or apparently silly),but that is not a denial of fact but a multifaceted discussion.

LOL! Who knew the intricacies (if there ever was any) of "Donald Duck and Friends wish you a Merry Christmas" and the superbowl was so problematic! Personally, I never saw the Donald Duck special before, but after exhausting the subject like this, I feel I should at least see some clips of it. Not so much the Superbowl though...not too much of a fan of football.

We use to exchange gifts or at least send a card to express the thought that we cared about each other.


I can do this much better by speaking meeting to those i care for, cards are against my puritanical sensibilities:), do we really care that much for that many that rainforests are forced to disapear for the fact we are to lazy to pick up the phone?
Cards are generic, a kiss is worth more.
Write your own poem, it shows you care even more than the crowd who didn't have the time. We make time for those we love.
Now if you send cards to those you dont love, has not something been lossed in you and the reason for the card in the first place but to gain an impersonal impression. May as well flail your arms about in the street to tell the world, 'here I am' but not for you because my signature is worth more than my presence.
Sorry i may have taken this to far:D

not really too far. the fact is, traditions are commercial often rather than meaningful and something that costs no money at all can be far batter.

for instance ads that tell men to buy flowers for their ladies...how many ladies want flowers killed on their behalf?

Only those women and men who put stock in the commercials that tell them flowers are romantic, are a sign of love.
Flowers represent/mean so much more than just love especially just romantic love.
They dont really want the flowers even the thought, they just dont want to be left out, they want to be what they have been told/seen they want, more about what you think of your self is worth by a poor commercialised standard posseessional than what another loves you for and a reason for the thought.
Men are usually crap at gifts as well so this gives them a standard they can live up to.
Alot of people watch those ads Salima they have come to believe brainwashed that this is a sign of love romance rather than a sign of commercialism and those brainwashed people keep alot of people in money and guilt, that is another reason women men dont really want them bought because this gives them some power over the non commital.
'why dont you buy me flowers anymore?'
'i never bought them for you in the first place'
Who really estimates love this way dosen't really know the worth of what love they probably dont have or do but dont know how to see it anymore.
Damn ads.Smile
