A return to a less commercial Christmas?

The polemical call for a return to a more proper, wholesome Christmas, without the commerce and shopping, is not a new thing. There was a rather nice editorial piece in yesterday's FT, calling for less history, with a short historical survey of Christmas celebrations, eschewing all the spending from which, presumably, many of its readers make heaps of cash. Quite refreshing, especially within a fairly jaded genre.
