THE MOST IMPORTANT CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY
This is something that many have thought about. Christmas is important as the birth of Christ is associated with it, but easter is also crucial as it is the day when Lord Jesus Christ rose from death to eternal life. Everyone has their birthday, but this is the time when one triumphed over death, and Easter is celebrated nearly for two months, but when it comes to Christmas we tend to observe it from December till January. There are so many things involved, and sure there are the Easter bunnies for Easter and Santa Claus for Christmas, but now it all depends on you. They both are essential.
THE BOXING DAY
This is still the one on which mist debates are happening. Some used to consider that the day is for boxing up unwanted presents but the day is actually for acts of kindness. Well, some say that it was the opening of the boxes where the parishioners collected the alms for the poor, and the day following Christmas was the feast of st. Stephens but there is no concrete evidence as such. The day does symbolize being kind so ensure that you are kind on that day and that can even mean sending online new year cake delivery to the ones you love or just getting the cake to your doorstep and distributing it to the poor.
JESUS WAS BORN IN A STABLE
Now, this is something that must have come as a shocker to you. Reverend Ian paul, has said that it might have been due to the wrong translation of the Greek word ‘kataluma’ which was wrongly translated as an ‘inn’ but in actuality, it was supposed to be a ‘private room’. It might have been a busy family room but not stable.
JESUS WAS AN ONLY CHILD
There have been numerous debates regarding this. Although the birth of Christ was the work of the holy spirit, one cannot just say that they had no children after that. There might be a possibility that Joseph and Mary had children and debates are going on whether the children were his cousins or his biological brothers and sisters. You can always discuss it with your loved ones. You can still read more about it and refer to the bible as well.
THE JINGLE BELLS SONG
Many things and myths are revolving around this song, and It is one of the most popular songs of all time, and I bet you must be humming this song right now. The song was initially written for the American Thanksgiving in the 1850s, and soon the lyrics were changed to make the song fit the theme of Christmas. The song is a mystery, and you can always read more about it and explore more. There are even debates regarding the origin of this song.
There are so many more things that you can discuss and talk about. This is the perfect time to spend your time with your family and discuss the bible and many more things that can opt for this year. Make sure that you are celebrating this time with your family and you can even opt for the new year cake if you wish to and wish them a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
