deck the halls

Diana loves Christmas decorating.  I am also a fan… but!

that being said, there is this video i saw a couple weeks back, i can’t remember what it was called, but it talked about how if north america alone stopped spending money on christmas presents/decorations/plane tickets/etc, and instead just had a normal day, and spent that money on finding ways of providing clean water to the whole world, that the whole world would have clean water and there would be a stupid huge surplus left over, like finance a small country stupid huge, that could be used to tackle other world problems.  Pretty crazy.  I think it’s called like “advent conspiracy” or something.

The numbers were staggering, and if they were accurate, appalling.  angering.  How does one motivate a society to change?  ugh.
