On praying before religious icons

I have nothing against kissing the statuette of the infant Jesus (or praying before religious icons) because I also believe that, in doing so, it is just like an expression or showing importance to someone you value or care about. It is not worshiping or praising the artifact per se, as how other religious groups understand it, but a simple veneration. Idolatry is about giving higher regard to any other things than God. Catholics only give recognition to some things that remind them of God, Mary, Jesus or saints. People who accuse Catholics of idolatry should know better.
