Why should there be any annual celebration of giving presents Pamela? Is that not just feeding the consumeristic materialism that is the complete opposite to the Christ principles? Is that not why the Christ stood against the Jewish priests? Due to their materialism?
What is the greatest gift?
The spiritual gifts from God that everyone was born with. But yet, humanity allow materialism to keep them in separation from God because they are too busy shopping outside of themselves instead of doing what Christ asked them to do.
The Buddhist monks live the Christ principles more than the Christians do.
Back to hanukkah the Hindus also celebrate a festival of lights.
