“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

“Do you hear that?”

“Hear what?”

“Christmas Bells!”

Christmas, my favorite time of the year, the time of the year where it’s chilly but it’s the most peaceful time of the year. The time when I love to listen to Christmas carols, when I love to put up the Christmas tree, and lastly to spend time with family. One of the famous symbols of this holiday is the Christmas tree.

Most people do not think about it and just put up the tree as a custom which has been done for the past years, while in fact, it is in use for the past 150 years and something I was pretty excited about in the past and in the present. Now I don’t think I really have to explain why we celebrate Christmas, but for my satisfaction, I’d love to do it.

Christmas also known as Nöel, Nativity, Yuletide, and many more are celebrated on the 25th of December every year to accommodate the birth of Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus Christ goes way back to the New Testament where it’s mentioned that Christ was born in Bethlehem to Joseph and Mary. Even though the 25th of December isn’t the exact date of the birth of Christ, the churches of the fourth century fixed the date as December 25th. Jesus as said in the Bible is the son of God who came down to earth in human form to make amends for the sins committed by humanity. Christmas is a festival celebrated by all Christians all over the world, it’s a festival for family and a time to praise God.

Christmas is a season of joy, a time to help and thank people around us, it reminds us about the importance of family, giving and sharing, and lastly forgiving, for Jesus gave his life for the sins of humanity and thus we shall learn to forgive others so that he will forgive our sins. Regardless of whether you’re Christian or not, Christmas is a season for family and forgiving, a time to keep your biases aside and spend your time together with your family and friends!
