For my austerity and prosperity project I decided to focus on Christmas, as it is prosperous in a sense that some people can’t afford to celebrate Christmas in some of the ways we are used to in the UK.

I also wanted to show that it is a very materialistic day, with presents and Christmas lights etc. allowing us to show off around this time of year.
