I believe the lyrics from John Lennon, “So this is Christmas,” is an appropriate way to start this letter. It is Christmas all over the world. As I acknowledge this, I cannot help but wonder which country and who are the people who keep and honor Christmas in the most fitting way. Is it the United States? Is it the fact that we have 9 percent unemployment; due in part to the fact that so, so many of our Christmas gifts come from other countries?
