How Long Until Christmas
Christmas is an annual Christian celebration of Jesus Christ that happens on the 25th day of December. More than the official description, Christmas is a magical season themed with chiming bells, carols and lots of gifts.
December 25th was first identified as the birth date of Christ in 221 by Sextus Julius Africanus. It has ever since been adopted globally as the official date of celebration.
How To Celebrate Christmas
There's no particular rule of thumb when it comes to how best to celebrate Christmas. That said, it would prove to be more rewarding if you seize the feeling of the season to engage in truly meaningful practices. Here are a few cool ways to celebrate Christmas;
- Take out time to Reflect
- Spend time with family and friends
- Spread Love and Give
- Christmas Carols
Christmas comes with lots of buzz and glee. Repeated chiming of bells, singing of carols and all round busyness. A good activity for this season would be to switch things up by opting to get deeper on a spiritual level.
Careful introspection as well as Meditation never gets old, and Christmas is just about a good time as any to look inward. The good thing about this activity is that you can decide to do it alone or with friends. Reflection allows us the opportunity to re-evaluate details we may have missed before, and also heal old wounds.
Meaningful human relationships will always provide more value than material things. The magical season of Christmas is a great time to reconnect with family and friends, share beers, gifts and commune. Time spent with family and friends will be memorable in times to come.
There's no Christmas without genuine charity and love for others. As a matter of fact, spreading love and giving is the point of the holiday, so don't hold back on it. Take time out to give to your loved ones and also to those who are less privileged around you.
Learn the songs, rhymes and anthems, sing them with friends! There are tons of interesting carols to be sung in this season, so feel free to learn them and sing them at your local church or at home with your loved ones. Doesn't matter if you've got the voice of the Nightingale or not. It's the love and thought that counts :)
