No To Extravagant Company Christmas Parties

What can you say about having extravagant Christmas parties before we hit the holidays?
I know it only happens once in a year but ever since the typhoon Haiyan left Tacloban City in Leyte and other parts of Visayas literally flat, I feel like there is no sense having Christmas parties with tons of leftover foods and drinks when you see images of families who beg for food in the streets. I find no reason for spending parties in plush restaurants when there are still families who have no roofs to protect them from the weather.
I applaud those companies and families as well who, instead of having parties this yuletide season, opt to donate or spend a day or two of charity works.
I mean, at this point of economic hardships and calamities, we must be more sensitive to the feelings of others. Let us be more generous in giving to those who are most needy because I believe that if we are generous to others, God will also be generous to us.
