For Christmas People start preparations before weeks, youngsters update their Christmas WhatsApp status and also start wishes their friends and family members from their smart phones or gadgets.
Christmas festival falls every year on 25th of December. People celebrated Christmas to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. Christian’s people believe that he was the son of god, as hundreds of years ago one astrologer did Prophecy that soon son of god will be born to save the humanity. Jesus Christ was born to mother Mary and father Joseph.
On the occasion of Christmas churches across all over the world fully cleaned by the staff of the church. They clean the church and whitewash it before the arrival of Christmas festival. People also clean their houses before Christmas Eve. They also decorate their houses with lights, flowers, a big star made of colorful paper hung at the entrance of the house.

On the day of Christmas people visit the church and lighten up the candle in front of Jesus Christ and mother Mary statue. Children also wait for their Santa Claus; people believe that Santa Claus was an old saint, who distributed gifts to the good children.
Christmas dinner is another important part of the Christmas festival, lady of the house prepared Christmas dinner for family and friends and after pray to god, everyone eats dinner together, Roasted Turkey is the main dish on the menu card. After dinner, people perform their traditional dance and enjoy the Christmas Eve together.
May god spread prosperity and joy in your life on this New Year and fulfill all your dreams. I wish that this new year light of faith is bright and steady and may no wind or storm make it flicker or flutter.
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind, to cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”
I love Christmas, not just because of the presents but, because of all the decorations and, lights and the warmth of the season.
