The Feast

Patron saint, 18th birthday, weddings, 1st birthday, baptism, joining the army… just name it.

People are making huge feasts and they want to have more guests than their neighbours, better band,  better meals… 

Although it all sounds nice; friends and family gather around and they celebrate certain milestones in somebody’s life, they have fun and they all leave satisfied, but is it really all that good?

Many people get a loan from the bank to organize such an event.  Many people are paying for one meal, one feast for the next six months, or a year or even more.

Is it really necessary to spend money which we don’t have on things that we don’t need? Where else could’ve we invested that money instead of buying dinner for a bunch of people we don’t even care about?
