Why is Christmas such a happy season?
This is perhaps my most favourite festival of the year. From my many excursions all around the world winter season across continents, nations, states, cities, towns all have a underlying emotion of joy and happiness which is not motivated but genuine
The Christmas trees small and big, luxurious and simple, all beckon you warmly. There is an expectant air of surprise and happiness unbridled, chirping from every nook and cranny. The most awaited time of the year has to be December and Christmas
Memorable and fantastic (month long) free sweets and puddings and cakes and chocolates at the work place, to happy music washing the corridors we walk, to the well decorated malls and shops with fairy lights, the occasional Santa you come across that triggers all wonderful school memories of surprise gifts….O this season of ‘chirp’ rules for me.
Red Christmas plants flowering everywhere, decorating and ornamenting the real or the plastic Christmas tree which is a ceremony by itself in so many homes, the churches wearing a buzz of bonding, forgiving and forgetting old wounds, Christmas definitely brings with it something special each year.
Besides the popular gingerbread cookies, kal kals and marzipan, and the famous plum cake that Mathew’s mum bakes (has to be the bestest in the world), the holiday season surely takes on a light, flirty, tinkling laughing hue
As Christmas is the season of good cheer and goodwill, it also becomes a handy excuse to get in contact with family, beloved ones as well as friends. Very often during the year we don't find the time to stay connected – Christmas becomes the very reason to be back in touch, especially if they live far away.
Finally there is the most awaited activity of Christmas, to find out what Santa brought on Christmas Eve. Although as adults we buy and get pleasure in gifting those gifts, it is the young kids who get the most pleasure from receiving Christmas presents. To find the before carefully hidden Christmas presents under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning is one of the most fantastic ways to create unforgettable memories for children at Christmas.
Merry Christmas All
