It's Christmas!

Christmas is the most awaited celebration of the year. Some people even started celebrating in the month of September (with and ending sound of “ber”). Why we celebrate Christmas? How do we celebrate Christmas?Christmas is a holiday generally observed and celebrated every December 25. This is to commemorate the birth of Jesus. The date is not known to be the actual birthday of Jesus, but it may have been initially chosen to correspond either the day exactly after nine months whom Jesus was conceived. Christmas is not only celebrated by Christians but is widely celebrated by non-Christians. We can see different Christmas decorations hanging in every home and establishments to symbolize celebrations and happiness of the holiday season. Of course when it’s Christmas everybody is in a rush in going to the malls to buy new things for themselves and for others. People do not mind if there is economic crisis as long as they can celebrate this special day even in a simple way. Since it is a celebration for Jesus, we should not forget to attend mass and offer our thanksgiving for a good year He gave. Merry Christmas to all and I hope that each of us will have a prosperous year to come.
