A new term for Christmas, invented as a reflection of the fact the original values and methods of celebrating have been streamlined and homogenised to the point of it being a mere exercise in material gain.
Gone are the values of "peace and goodwill to all men" and finding solidarity in the company family and friends. Christmas is now just a way for large multi-national companies to further part people from their cash, as if they weren't wasting enough of it at all other times of year.

Jenny: "It's not even December yet, and still the plastic trees and tacky lights are up."
Judith: "I know. I wonder if people even remember what Christmas is supposed to be about."
Jenny: "Yeah, now it's more like a giant acquisitionfest."
