Xmas is the most popular festival , which is celebrated all over the world. Two more days to go. WOW!
"Xmas" is an abbreviation of Christmas found particularly in print, based on the initial letter chi (Χ).
Christmas is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and a widely observed cultural holiday, celebrated on December 25 by millions of people around the world. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift giving, Christmas music and singing carols, exchange of Christmas cards, a special meal, and the display of various Christmas decorations, including Christmas trees, Christmas lights, garlands, mistletoe, and holly. In addition, several closely related and often interchangeable figures, known as Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas. Christmas is celebrated today in family gatherings with seasonal food and drink, dancing, games, and singing carols. Houses are decorated with lights and Christmas figures.
Preparations for Christmas start many days in advance in our house..Collection of items like beads, flowers, balloons, stars and other knick knacks are kept ready. On Christmas eve the whole family is involved in singing Christmas carols, while decorating the tree. In our family we never purchase a ready made tree. We have grown Christmas trees in mud pots in our house. A photo of the Christmas tree decorated in our house last year is shown below
