So large corporations don't real feel or exemplify the spirit if Christmas, except cynically as a marketing ploy?

Well I'll be darned.

... and half the smaller companies, will be basic middlemen, selling rebranded items from huge Chinese manufacturers, that will even brand and package the items for you.

Counterpoint: if they're providing better service, selection, and/or product for customers it isn't "stealing" it's just being a better business.

Retail companies just buy and resell things from real companies.

Buying direct through digital marketplaces makes retail obsolete.

So in the end, large vs. small won't matter.

Half of Amazon is just middlemen reselling the same Chinese made crap under different brand names. If anything, the digital marketplace has made the middleman problem worse.
