Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ and is celebrated by people the world over. This holiday has different connotations in different cultures. The American adaptation of this holiday is far more commercial than it is in India. In India it is primarily a religious celebration. Christmas reinforces the belief that Christians have in an almighty power. For children it is a time of merriment and winter wonderlands. Like the song goes it is the most magical time of the year and this is even truer when it comes to the young and the naïve. They believe in every fable and every mythical story they hear. It resonates through them and if you look closely you can see it in their eyes plain as day.

Some of their most precious childhood memories are created during this time of the year. Christmas is a time of the year when the regular world ceases to exist and everything is bright and sparkly. Some undeniable Christmas traditions are Christmas carols sung around a piano near the fireplace, eggnog and beautifully wrapped gifts under the Christmas tree.

Christmas Carols and the Spirit of Christmas:

Singing Christmas carols is one of those wonderful Christmas traditions that bring everyone together. Christmas carolers sing on the street sidewalks, at malls, at home and even go door-to- door sometimes. Often schools have choirs and children are taught Christmas carols which they then perform for winter carnivals and other such occasions which occur during the holiday season. This holiday also teaches children to have the spirit of generosity and sharing, so sorely in lacking in some children if they have no siblings. There are often clothing drives for the needy and children are sometimes expected to help out at shelters and soup kitchens to impose on them the true spirit of Christmas, which is to spread joy and love.
