What’s be­come of Christ­mas

South Wales Evening Post - - LETTERS -

Does Christ­mas hold such high es­teem, As it did so long ago? Now, as each year passes Rev­er­ence fades more and more.

It’s be­come more com­mer­cialised, Lav­ish ad­verts on TV Much less re­li­gious fes­ti­val, More of a shop­ping spree.

And out­door il­lu­mi­na­tions, Are they there just to compete? So folk can say,”just look at ours the bright­est in the street.”

Less home made dec­o­ra­tions, For that’s the mod­ern way, Shep­herds and an­gels much less vogue, Than a plump man on a sleigh.

Of course we can still cel­e­brate, Con­tinue feast and fun, But let’s re­mem­ber Christ­mas, For the birth of God’s own son.
