Christmas commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son.
The name ‘Christmas’ is derived from Christ’s Mass. (or Jesus). Christians attend a Mass service to remember that Jesus died for us and subsequently rose from the dead. The only ceremony that could take place after sunset was the ‘Christ-Mass,’ therefore people had it after Midnight! As a result, we have the name Christ-Mass, which has been reduced to Christmas.
The atmosphere is filled with positive energy and is stress-relieving. Allow your children to be themselves and participate in the fun. Christmas celebrations at school are also a joyous occasion. It contributes to the development of team spirit, mutual aid, and cohesiveness.
Learning about God and Faith
Christmas is one of those holidays that is observed by people of all castes, creeds, and faiths. It is a festival that honors family love, warmth, joy, and selflessness. It’s important to enjoy Christmas in all of its glory with your children so that they can learn about different faith festivals and develop a feeling of religious tolerance.
Happy times With Family
Among all of these celebrations, the Christmas supper is the most memorable. It encourages families to get together and spend time together. Your children will meet and become acquainted with all of your relatives. They get to feel firsthand the warmth and affection of family and learn what it means.
Be at Peace with All
We must strive hard to maintain the peace and love that the season brings and learn to tolerate and support each other at all times because Christ, whose posthumous birthday we celebrate today, was a true embodiment of peace, love, care, and righteousness.
Prepare your PVC
In all, make sure you are not carried away by the fun of Christmas as the Election is around the corner. Remember that PVC is your power to bargain for a better future for yourself and the unborn generations. You must use it wisely.
Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in advance.
