Big parts of Europe and North America, some other parts of the world are living in a “welfare society”. That means, there are some poor people in these countries, but mostly the 80-90 percent of the population has all the important things or more. Enough food, one or two cars per family, a nice flat or house, vacations…

Has it sense to buy presents (gifts), at Christmas time, or on birthdays, or is it only a waste of resources and time?
