Sir: John Walsh is unimaginative in his response to Christmas day ("Fairy lights and surgical strikes", 21 December). He could tell his children a ghost story or sing The Village Pump or take them round the garden looking at the sleeping plants. Christmas for children can be a magical time. The preceding three months hear most adults complaining about Mammon and the truth of Christmas being hidden behind commercialism. I don't see why we can't all take responsibility for our own Christmas. Decide how you could enjoy the enforced festive season and make it meaningful for you. Celebrate the solstice, celebrate your family, or celebrate Christ.
