Christmas lightning - The opinion

I love lights and illuminations. On my travels I see wonderful Christmas lighting displays all over the world and I find them fascinating. On the other hand I think about the millions who have to live without any lights, and I feel rather ashamed.
Day after day when night comes they lay down, and at dawn, when the world awakens again, they rise and continue on their way. I have had this experience myself –but all in relative comfort with the advantage of a tent and a torch! I certainly do not want to contribute to causing harm to the environment, but the time around Christmas has a place deep within the hearts of people and has a profound meaning, remembering also that the Holy Star, which lit the path of the Three Kings on their way to the birthplace of Jesus, illuminated brightly the sky above.
