Despite a dwindling economy Christmas sales are at an all time high, pulling companies out of the red.
Answer to question 1. Why were the Whos so happy at the end of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, despite the fact that all the decorations and presents were stolen?
Answer to question 2 Do you think having the biggest light display helps or hinders a stores business?
Answer to Socratic follow up to question 2 (Question 3?) Why do you think they would decorate early if it did not boost sales?
Opening was far too short and without direction
First Post again short and without direction.
Found his debate to be too clinical for a “Holiday Debate”
While WW13’s opening was also very minimal he did at least give us the direction he was going to go.
First post actually got into the subject matter pretty well especially with the candy references.
Let the elderly decorate early!
Cutting to the chase:
I enjoyed reading Wormwoods debate as I feel he got “into the spirit” more than titorite. Inserting humor and fantasy to illustrate points very effectively.
I especially enjoyed his last post. Not the closing so much but his last reply.
Win to Wormwood13
While I personally wish I could say otherwise because, in my opinion, the “Christmas season” now drags on forever, I must award the win for this debate to wormwood13. Once the issue of peoples’ freedom to decorate when and how they choose, and the right of businesses to run their business as they see fit is brought up, this major point is not successfully refuted by titorite.
Good points are made by both fighters, and titorite’s “traditional” argument was compelling, but wormwood13 made an effective rebuttal that traditions continually grow and change.
Good fun, guys, thanks for the entertainment.
