Parade for retail
Regarding Cate Lister’s letter
Let’s fete peace on earth (Nov. 6) on the Santa Claus parade before Remembrance Day.
Remembrance Day is a solemn time to acknowledge the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the sake of others. It’s like going to a funeral and memorializing someone who has just died except we are memorializing all the fallen soldiers.
We live in a society based on dollars and cents. It seems profit takes place over the most important thing in life, which is understanding what these individuals went through during battle.
The Santa Claus parade is just a time to get people out Christmas shopping to meet profit margins for retailers. Remembrance Day should come before Christmas and a federal law should be put into effect that any retailer who decorates and celebrates before Remembrance Day should be fined for doing so.
