I am sure by now, everyone most feel the Christmas spirit as the Christmas Eve is near by now
Christmas is for joy, for giving and sharing, for laughter, for coming together with family and friends, for tinsel and brightly decorated packages... But mostly, Christmas is for love. It was this love for which Jesus came to this world and sacrificed his life.
Thus Christmas is a celebration of love and mirth symbolized by the Nativity, the Santa, the caribou, the poinsettia and the evergreens. All that bring home the spirit of love and life. And this is the spirit that makes Christmas so popular throughout the world.
Every year more than 400 million people celebrate Christmas around the world -- that makes Christmas one of the world's biggest religious and commercial festivities. In approximately year 300 A.D., the birthday of Jesus was determined to be on December 25, the day that has been celebrated from then till this very day. The celebration on the 25th of December starts with Christmas Eve, the evening of December 24.
Christmas season fills our hearts with joy;
Bright, happy days bring special kinds of pleasure.
We're wrapped in the excitement of it all,
The sights, the sounds, the smells and the tastes we treasure.
Yet when we have some quiet time to think
About our finest blessings all year through,
We focus on our Friends,
And appreciate the gift of knowing you!
We would like to wish all of our friends here in IF and their beloved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!
