LETTER: Christmas should be humble celebration

News Dec 16, 2014 Hamilton Mountain News

Do we celebrate who in the neighborhood has the most brightest and attractive Christmas exterior light decorations or gives the most expensive jewelry, fashionable clothes, electronic gadgets or trip to some exotic islands?

Or do we celebrate Christmas with heavy drinking and lavish food party?

Maybe we have lost the true meaning of Christmas.

Have we forgotten that Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, redeemer of us all, was born without the comfort of the inn and that he was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger?

We should celebrate this wonderful event, the birth of Jesus Christ, in the atmosphere of humility.
