Church at Christmas

'The church, which was packed to capacity, was aglow with lighted candles everywhere and the electric light dimmed. The choir was better than anything I heard on TV over Christmas and there were dozens of little children present' Photo: Depositphotos

Sir - Eilis O'Hanlon's article 'Childhood Ghosts at Christmas' (December 20) described not going to Mass as the plus side of a modern Christmas.

While I enjoy reading some of Eilis's articles, I do not agree with some points in this article.

If Eilis was to come down the country on Christmas Eve and go to Mass in a small village, it would open her eyes. In our local church, the sight of a beautiful Christmas tree outside was a welcoming sight.
