Christmas of Millennials: the Network has launched a new flashmob

And it is rather sad.

Everything in our world is changing — even holiday traditions. On the eve of Christmas and New year on user page @MidweekMinute in Twitter there was a post that asked about modern Christmas traditions under the hashtag #millennialchristmastraditions (“Christmas traditions of the Millennials”).

The majority of users who identify themselves as Millennials, mostly complain about the lack of money and housing, prefer social media instead of live contact with relatives and friends and talk a lot about healthy lifestyles, social rights and freedom. Although some of the modern traditions and very funny, for example, competition for the ugliest Christmas sweater.
