Only in the US do you call it "happy holidays", as if afraid to recognise what it is.
No. Consumerism has not taken over Christmas. Christmas is about family and (if you are a Christian) the symbolism around the birth of Christ. In the Christian tradition there is celebration, feasting and making merry.
Was Christmas destroyed by consumerism?
