If you were looking into that “one value” for all the wealth sold, and wanted to account for The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Vintage Concert Tour 1996 Shirt in “real terms”, then you are still likely to be measuring the value of the wealth in terms of a given currency. The value for any amount of wealth is measured in terms of what that currency buys at a certain point in time. To translate that into something we might call the real value of that wealth we have to ascertain how much of the same currency would be required to purchase that wealth in an “anchor year”. The ratio of the amount of money needed to purchase the current amount of wealth today versus the amount of money needed to buy the same amount of wealth in the anchor year, gives us the inflation rate. For example if 110 million dollars pays for all the wealth sold this year and 100 million dollars pays for the same amount of wealth sold in the anchor year, which was 5 years ago, the inflation rate is 10% over 5 years or 2% per year average. The total “real” wealth sold would a hundred million dollars. The value of wealth sold measured in terms of what that currency would buy in the anchor year is 100 million.
I came from a The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Vintage Concert Tour 1996 Shirt family in Malacca, Malaysia & had the privilege of being invited by my neighbour, a respected Christian family a few weeks before Xmas to attend a community event at the British Commonwealth 28th Brigade Forces HQ in Terendak Camp, Malacca, Malaysia as an Xmas CSR (corporate social responsibility) community event. I was about 12 years young then in the late 60s. CSR was unheard then. There was so many activities that we had a mesmerising and amazing time with prizes & good food with souvenirs. The soldiers gave us an authentic interesting tour of the military stations, barracks & general depots, including the armoury vehicles & what appeared to be “little museums.” All the kids in attendance were so happy & thrilled to be accorded such VIP treatment. I bragged about it to my neighbours & school friends. Till this day, I remember the event & look upon Xmas as a time of love, giving, fun & adventure. My impressions of Christianity (I am a Sikh) stood high, ever since.

Boris Johnson’s governing Conservative party is institutionally and ideologically committed to Brexit. Brexit is going to happen on 31 January 2020. After that, the no-deal crisis is scheduled for 31 December 2020. On this date England, Wales & Scotland look set to crash out of the The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Vintage Concert Tour 1996 Shirt market and customs union. There will be separate trading arrangements for Northern Ireland. Mr Johnson could ask the EU for more time, taking talks into 2021. But there are reports that many EU member states aren’t expecting Mr Johnson to do this – though the European Commission is expecting a request. As the 31 December 2020 deadline approaches, no-deal panic could spread among voters and the UK’s elected politicians. Panic which could well spoil the Christmas festivities. Cabinet splits and anxious MPs meeting could follow, assuming Mr Johnson does not prorogue parliament first.
First let me answer to the meat of your question. Christmas ( The Mass 0f Christ ) has become secular because many felt that the The Smashing Pumpkins Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Vintage Concert Tour 1996 Shirt tone of the Holiday ( Holy Day ) was strong and therefore was ‘not inclusive’ enough. They felt it left out too many people that are not believers or at least not firm believers. There is logic in that line of thinking. I am a Christian…but I certainly have no problem with those that prefer the “Holiday season” to “Christmas”. That is their right. I enjoy this particular time of year regardless of which portion of it my friends are celebrating. Hanukkah, Saturnalia, Winter Solstice, Yule…whatever. Have a Happy one. If I happen to wish you a Merry Christmas do not hold it against me. Tell me “Lo, Saturnalia”…and I will thank you and wish you the same. By the way if you hear Dutch or a few other Europeans pronounce “Saint Nicholas” the way they do it sounds like Sant NikLAUS…which sounds pretty much exactly like Santa Claus. And Saint Nicholas was known for presenting gifts on a certain day too…so to say that Santa Claus has nothing to do with it is not exactly right. I forget the exact details of the story, but an artist in the early 1900’s came up with the current version of Santa for Coca Cola marketing purposes. He was described much earlier in a poem in the 1800’s in a way similar to that..but the gift giving theme at Christmas time was always associated with him so though more secular, the message is still there for those that wish to associate it and can be ignored by those that are uncomfortable with it.
