The Christmas holiday is today, December 25th, and the annual festivities surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ and the Christian religion are taking place everywhere across the western world and the United States at large. While the Christmas holiday is largely a western tradition, the modern interpretation of the holiday in America is quite unique to that nation. As the union has changed significantly in terms of demographics and the influence of Christianity as an organized religion in the country has markedly declined (and the traditional nuclear family along with it), the meaning of Christmas on a national scale has been sizably altered. In truth, the contemporary celebrations have largely devolved into a secularized, materialistic, capitalist spending spree. Just this year alone, over twelve billion dollars has already been spent on the festivities in the United States.
Since 1965, large change has occurred to the nature and composition of American society across the country. This change has been much more significant in certain areas of the country as opposed to others. An influx of non western immigration has truly transformed American demographics over the last 50 years, and the result has been a much more heterogenized culture and a decline in Christianity.
But while much of the change that has been quite altering to America has been gradual in style, the three years of Joe Biden’s presidency have brought about rapid change to America. Millions of Illegal migrants have entered the nation through the southern border, and tens of thousands are estimated to be entering each day. This far, the Biden administration has done very little to combat the issue and at times has failed to even openly acknowledge the problem despite thousands of migrants being bussed to major cities across the country. In a recent development, Biden shut down significant railroad routes to Mexico, pausing trade due the surge of migrants. Migration remains a serious problem in the present.
