The different ways to celebrate christmas.

Updated on December 13, 2010

What is christmas?

Christmas is a the celebration that marks the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus christ was born about 2010 years ago in Bethelehem, a city found in modern Israel. Jesus of Nazareth was born to the virgin Mary. The christian churches founded their teachings from the teachings of Jesus. Christmas is a celebration in remembrance of the birth of Jesus.

Before christmas, the christians celebrate a period of advent when penance is the main focus of all the christians. Christmas is a period when people strengthen their relationships with their families. This is also the time the people help the less fortunate members of their society. Jesus in his teachings showed that we should always be caring for the less fortunate and we should all be our brothers' keepers.

Christmas is a whole period of celebrations which culminates with celebrating the birth of Jesus christ on the 25th of December.

 For all the other people, christmas is a time of celebrating and taking a break from the daily grinding in life before stepping up again in the new year which starts shortly after christmas.

Christmas can be celebrated in many ways such as: A season for giving to the less fortunate ones and caring for them. One can dedicate all the efforts to help someone in need: a neighbor or a friend who is in need of help or care. They could be sick,elderly,or destitute.

Christmas can be celebrated as a period of forgiving all those who have wronged us and asking for forgiveness from those we have wronged. They may be family or our friends. We can celebrate this time by building new stronger relationships with our families and friends. We can organise a family get-together, a friends christmas party, or a family execursion.

A tropical vacation: the carribeans, Hawaii,Africa,a memorable Safari, a one-of-the-kind tropical cruise, a trip to Tahiti. The celebrations can be even more exciting if we travel with our loved ones and enjoy the ambience of these vacations strengthening our relationships. We can also travel to different cities to see our distant relatives.

For lovers for shopping,christmas season can be celebrated by shopping their hearts out. Deals and deals everywhere. From toys to apparel to name it,there is a deal or sale going on.
