Rifts over gifts

When I was browsing the internet on Christmas Day morning, over the course of one hour I was bombarded with at least eight pop-ups from auction websites urging me to sell my Christmas presents if they were unliked.

I was appalled by this insensitive and inappropriate timing. It really takes away from the spirit of Christmas and giving, and this aggressive marketing should be stopped forthwith.

Many people have got into debt this Christmas to buy loved ones presents and I would be horrified if I thought that someone I had given a present to was considering selling it.
