I thought about what would happen if Jesus were to be born in Hong Kong today - Mary and Joseph would probably have to stay at a cheap motel with one of those 純粹租房 ("purely room renting") signs on the fifth floor of a rundown building with no lift in Shum Shui Po.
Shum Shui Po is one of the poorest districts in Hong Kong. It is also the area where new immigrants, ethic minorities, low income families and the working poor live. They live in sub divided flats with poor living condition. Many of these "flats" can only fit in a bed and the occupants have to put all their possessions on that bed. It is the equivalent of the manger in Hong Kong, no one would like to find themselves in that situation.
I want us to rethink the true meaning of Christmas
