Tomorrow is 25th December. Udaipur city is coloured with celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Churches are being decorated. Hustle and bustle is on in the markets, carol singing, waiting for Santa Claus and what not… The air is soon to be full of aroma coming from cakes and other delicious varieties. Children are waiting for Santa to shower them with gifts.
Before letting the children have their fun of winter vacations, schools celebrated Christmas giving every child a feel of this wonderful festival. The sound of prayers is filling the atmosphere and people are waiting for the church bells to announce the birth of Lord Christ.
On the day of birth of Christ, prayers for the welfare of all and forgiveness to those who did wrong, prayers for the benefit of needy and prayers for peace will prove honey to ears. Charity is also done for the poor so that they, too, can celebrate in a justified manner.
People are also busy decorating their houses. Satins and frills are the highlight every season. Little girls dressed in beautiful white frocks look like angels from Heaven. School children enact a play based on birth of Jesus Christ and carol singing follows.
Our Lady of Fatima Cathedral Church in Alipura, St. Gregorious Orthodox Valiyapalli Church, Church of God (Full Gospel) in India, Calvary Covenant Church, Apostolic Christian Assembly etc churches are all set to welcome Jesus Christ in their own beautiful styles.
Jingle Bells, Rudolph the red nose reindeer, Silent night, Wish you a Merry Christmas … all these are not new to the kids and they start humming these beautiful lyrics to welcome Christmas festivities every year. For the kids, Santa Claus is the most awaited person who brings gifts and fulfills their wishes. Basically, this is a festival where children learn to give up on wrong doing and also learn to forgive the wrong doers.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
