Hope this letter finds you in good health. We are all fine here in Bangalore. I received the letter regarding your school project and I am thrilled to write this letter in response to it.
Christmas time is always fun. The exams get over just before Christmas and it is a good break from school. New clothes, loads of cake and special food along with firecrackers make this season enjoyable. The carol singing and especially the house visit by Santa added more festive spirit to the season.
As a kid I had accompanied my grandmother for Christmas program among the under-privileged children. I gave just my old clothes to the under-privileged children I saw the joy in their eyes when they got it. I never realised that this small action had effects on another person's life. It opened my eyes to how the simple act of giving/gifting brings so much joy. I also used to tag along with my dad for carol singing in the hospital. I went because I feel bad for the sick as they were missing out on all the fun. In the hospital the patients welcome us when we go to sing for them especially the leprosy patients they are so happy to be included in the celebrations.
During the holiday season there are lots of festive activities and fun but the most joy comes from sharing God's love by caring for others in any possible manner bringing out Christmas' true meaning. Convey my love to your parents and sister and wishes for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
With lots of Love and prayers
