Christmas Cheer


One night archangel Gabriel, one of the seven guardian angels, appeared to a young woman Mary and told her that she will give birth to a messiah, who will find a new faith. Mary and her husband Joseph travelled 65 miles from their hometown Nazareth to Bethlehem, where Jesus Christ was born in a manger for cattle on December 25. Since then, the day has been celebrated as Christmas – the birthday of Jesus Christ with prayer services, carol singing, feasting and merry-making by people all over the world. The book, Festivals of the World- Christmas, one in the Festivals of the World series, captures the essence of the festival for little readers with an easy narrative in a simple language and colourful illustrations. What is Christmas, how it is celebrated and its significance…

Merry Christmas


Christmas celebrations begin with a midnight prayer service, known as the Mass, on the night of December 24, the Christmas Eve, as the clock moves slowly to midnight when Jesus was born. The prayer service opens with the singing of carols, followed by readings from the Bible, the holy book of the Christians and the Lord’s Prayer with Grace. Big Christmas trees of the Coniferous family are decked up with colourful angel lights, ribbons, silver and golden bells, balls, stars, streamers, baubles and gifts. The Churches, homes and streets are decorated with lights…. Nativity plays narrate the story of the birth of Jesus.


Gifting and Feasting


Santa Claus or Father Christmas drives down from Lapland in his sleigh drawn by reindeers, loaded with gifts and goodies for children. And even for adults. Children hang their stockings on the bedposts – Santa fills each stocking with a gift. Gifts abound! Families exchange exciting gifts over Christmas feasts and in Christmas parties. The Christmas feast is a lavish affair with potatoes, vegetables, gravies, goose, turkey, bread, fruit cakes, mince pies, puddings… And the cider! Read this colourful Christmas book to know more about the festival.
