The government and individuals are spending too much money on national celebrations like new year or festivals. Do you agree or disagree?
Government spending and individuals is often the center of criticism in all over the world. Some people believe spending on celebrations is too much money. In my opinion, I disagree with this vision. Despite the huge amount of investment to make it happen, these events contribute to the economical growth and enforce the sense of community. Celebrations fuels the economic growth. These events usually are created for thousands and even millions of people in order to they can attend and spend money. These conmemorations involve to provide many services aroud the event by employing people and contributing to the economic growth. For instance, Sydney new year celebration atracts millions of people from several countries. This visitors pay for fly tickets, restaurants, hotels and many other services during their attendance. Therefore, Australian economy is able to take the profit from that particular celebration regardless how much money they invested. On the other side, celebrations help to enforce sense of community. As a result, humans are social animals, the government efforts to conmemorate community events helps to increase the sense of to be part of a community. Thus, people are more engaged with the shared values of a particular group of people. For example, every year, Brazil invest millions of dollars to make an event to recall their ancient traditions. They dance and sign for an entire day. By doing this, people feel happier and the government spending contribute to the meaning of life for many citizens. In conclusion, I disagree with the view of spending on celebrations is too much. From my point of view, conmemorations fuel the economic growth of a particular community and also help to promote the shared values of a community.
