Its Christmas Eve and everyone from commuters to security guards to utility staff have been asking me for their gifts.

Funny how everyone says Christmas is the season of giving as long as they are the ones on the receiving side of things.

I have received numerous messages on sharing the spirit of the season, showing kindness, not forgetting to remember the reason for the season; but as I move around town today most of what I have witnessed today is greed, sour attitudes, selfishness, flared tempers and a lot of bright colors.

At what point then does Christmas begin and who leads?
