My Grandma says that it is not only the importance of sharing smiles and gifts; Christmas marks the cultural values of the society that you live in. The meaning of this great-grand holiday is much more substantial than carols and jingle bells. Neither the mouthwatering meals nor the echoing of pomp and show can suffice the spirit of the Christian holiday. It is much more than the lights of the tree and the snow in the yard; Christmas is the renewal of the spiritual character and moral values of every living being.
The time when Christ took birth was the most divine and holy moment in the history. Belonging to a very humble family background, Jesus Christ held a flawless and chaste character, which is the real point that the celebration makes. Spreading happiness, extending helping hands, and forgiving and forgetting the wrong doings of all are the learning of the day. However, a very beautiful point of significance is that the way we celebrate Christmas has become modern and enjoyable.
It has become more rejoicing and entertaining. People earn and spend their savings in this winter celebration season. Nothing has changed; the customs and the traditional beliefs of the occasion are the same, it’s just that the ways of commemorating have become statelier and more jubilating. Together with offering prayers on the eve of Christmas, it is great to sense that love and adoration is in the air. Shopping has become an integral aspect of merrymaking. What I love the most about the present-day Christmas is the pleasure people take in buying gifts for their family, friends and next-door neighbors.
This is one of the pleasing gestures of showing selflessness and benevolence. People don’t think much before buying precious gifts such as diamond and gemstone jewelry ensembles for their loved ones. In fact, such presents build many beautiful love stories in the lovely time of festivity. To offer dazzling and splendid jewelry gifts is a sacred way of honoring each other’s presence. It is rightly said that treating your relatives and guests with devotion is similar to praising the existence of Jesus. And what can be more righteous than giving a valuable token of love and goodwill and show humbleness to the best of our relations (provided that it comes straight from your heart)?
