About Christmas

Christmas is a Catholic festival celebrated on 25th December, every year, to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. Celebrated around the world with great enthusiasm, it is a day filled with joy and merrymaking. The festival is also considered a public holiday in many countries around the world.

History of Christmas

It is believed that Jesus Christ was born to Mary and Joseph in the city of Bethlehem, located in the State of Palestine. Scholars assume the birth year of Christ to be located sometime between 6 BC to 4 BC, while other historical events place the birth year in 6 AD. These events are largely talked about in the Bible. The popular date which thereafter came t be celebrated as Christmas was reportedly chosen based on the winter solstice in the Roman calendar.

Traditions

Christmas, like most other festivals, isn’t limited to any one particular faith. A festival of hope and joy, it is celebrated around the world by people of various different faiths. They come together to put up and decorate Christmas trees, bake plum cake, Christmas cookies, prepare festive drinks and sing carols. Santa Claus is also one of the most popular ideas associated with Christmas, as children look forward to the idea of Santa Claus giving them their Christmas presents. But, that’s not all. A few other elements that are part and parcel of the Christmas celebrations are kissing underneath the mistletoe, burning of the yule log, lighting of the four advent candles, preparing egg nog and decorating the house with poinsetties – also known as the Christmas flowers. Christmas feasts usually include elaborate turkey roasts, gingerbread and enjoying wine.

Here’s a little more about some of the most important elements of Christmas:

Yule Log: During the occasion, a piece of log is burnt through the Twelve Days of Christmas and different colour of flames can be observed by spraying different chemicals.

Advent: It is a period before Christmas wherein people light four candles on every Sunday that depicts different meanings. The first candle represents Isaiah and other prophets that predicted the arrival of Jesus, the second candle represents the Bible, the third candle represents the mother of Jesus, Mary and the fourth candle represents Jesus’ cousin, John the Baptist.

Eggnog: It is a traditional American drink consisting of egg and rum (Ale used in the earlier times).

Poinsettias: A famous plant found mainly in the Central American region; it is widely used in bouquets. The leaves in this plant represent purity.

Candy Canes: Candy Canes originated as Candy sticks. They were simple sugar flavoured sticks which now have peppermint or wintergreen added to it. The candy is made out of white and red colour. White representing purity, while red representing the blood shed by Lord Jesus when he was crucified.

Roast: Feasting on a roast certainly adds joy to the occasion as people prepare different kinds of roasts to celebrate Christmas with their loved ones.
