Christmas is on the way! The festival of joy and peace commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ and is one the most celebrated festival across the world.
X-mas or Christmas Day is celebrated every year with great enthusiasm on December 25 to mark the beginning of ‘Christmastide’ which lasts till the new year’s eve. Celebration starts days before the merry day with homes lighting up in beautiful decorative pieces, churches being decorated with lights and colourful stars, and people preparing delicacies for the auspicious occasion. Christmas trees, also known as Yule trees, are adorned with beautiful bells, wrapped gifts, fairy-lights, ribbons, sparkling stars, balloons, candies, tiny teddies during Christmas. A huge star or angel is also often placed at the top of the tree.
For adults it is the best time to go on a long relaxing vacation but for kids, this is the most exciting time of the year. As per fables, on Christmas night Santa Claus comes down from the chimney, eats cookies and milk, and leaves behind gifts for children who have been good the whole year. Much like Diwali, exchanging gifts among adults is a popular custom during Christmas as well. Much like the way turkey, fruit cakes, roasted potatoes and fudges remind us of Christmas, surprise gifts lighten up the spirit. So gear up this week and choose the best gift for your loved ones! Here’s a suggestion from Millennium Post.
