CLOZE 3: A Letter (21 December 2009): Buy a needy stranger a meal this season Christmas is commonly [1] associated with a festive mood, gifts, year-end bonuses and a lot of spending. With the economy coming [2] out of a recession, an often-heard refrain is [3] how hard it has been during the past year, for which we need to reward ourselves. There is [4] nothing wrong with pampering oneself. In fact, everyone needs to take a break, splurge a little and [5] enjoy/taste/savour/harvest the fruit of one’s labour after the sweat, pain and tears. Yet, we should [6] break away from the consumer cycle where the only reward for our work is to spend. It can become a [7] vicious cycle where we spend all our wakeful hours at work, then quickly [8] indulge in some prize item with the limited time we have and then return to work [9] even harder to earn enough to pay for it. While we plan our spending spree, let us take the [10] time to look around. We may notice neighbours, friends or strangers still [11] struggling /trying / attempting to escape the after-effects of the global economic crisis and put bread on the table. There may be someone who has [12] yet to feel the festive spirit because he has no money or, worse, no one to spend it with. Given the origins of Christmas, when an innkeeper is thought to have gone out of his way to make [13] room for a woman and her unborn child in a manger, can we not extend the same warmth to a stranger? In modern society, where tall buildings have [14] replaced / superseded kampungs, we need the Christmas spirit and kindness even more. As more of us rub shoulders and Prepared by YYH December2009
