To the editor,

This is my yearly letter to Santa. I think, in fact I know, if people really stood back and tried to figure out the true meaning of Christmas it would make a big difference.

You can have your charge cards and lay-away plans but then you have to worry about paying for it.

If people would go to their Bibles and start to read in Matthew Chapter 1, Verse 18, up to the end of Chapter 3, and I mean really read it, you will find the really true meaning of Christmas. It is nice to see the decorations on different places, however, we have to remember even here in New Glasgow or even in Pictou County we have homeless and hungry.

If you see a young or older homeless person why not take a toonie and buy them a coffee or sandwich. According to Matthew Chapter 25, Verse 40, you could be giving it to Jesus.

So merry Christmas to each and everyone in Pictou County. God bless.

    It is a shame that it has become a time of heart ache,depression,suicides and greed,the list goes on and on..I see no mention in the Bible to celebrate the birth of Christ and see it as a time where people get worked up and anxious more than anything.I do not think that GOD did or would have endorsed this. On the other hand we should celebrate every day with faith and giving and not make people feel that this time of year should be an obligation to be overwhelmed with giving and getting.We really have taught our children the wrong message and most do not even really know the real message of Christ.Please read 1 Corinthians 13 . Mathew 6:1-4 says“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly."
