In our world we so often love things and use people. When need to understand anew the true meaning of the terms: person – thing. Perhaps that is why the Saviour comes almost completely deprived of things that should accompany birth: instead of a house – a shed, instead of a cradle – a manger, instead of down – hay. But soon He is surrounded by persons. Their meaning grows whereas the meaning is things falls. Christmas presents make sense when they are an expression of love. that is why even the smallest ones are so valuable.
