As we all know, the birth of Jesus is celebrated with great pomp and show every year! However, owing to the pandemic we shall be limiting our celebrations to the four walls of our respective residences! Of course, we shall leave no stone unturned in remembering the Son Of God, be it anywhere!
Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem to Virgin Mary. It is said that the birth of Jesus was prophesized by Lord and the angels literally spoke to Mother Mary and intimated her regarding his birth. Such was the grace of our holy and beloved Jesus Christ!
Jesus Christ is believed to be the Jewish Messiah who is prophesized in the Hebrew bible which is called ‘The Old Testament Of Christianity’. Through his crucifixion and subsequent resurrection, God offered salvation to humans and an eternal life and Jesus died to atone for our sins to make humanity right with god. That is exactly why his sacrifice is so highly regarded and we love him from the bottom of our hearts.
The Legend Of The Christmas Tree!
It started with the Pagans of Europe who used fir tree leaves to decorate their homes during the winter solstice. Their idea of bringing the evergreen into the house represented fertility and new life in the darkness of winter which seems true, doesn’t it? When the modern Christmas tree, with its shimmering lights stands upright in the center, it sure gives out optimism and makes us feel energetic. Especially, the gifts underneath the tree are an exciting sight to hold (though we know those are empty boxes ;)).
There are several theories and legends as how the evergreen fir tree went on to become a symbol of Christianity. The common story however is that of Boniface, an English Benedictine monk, famous for his missionary work in Germany. It is said that he observed some Native Germans worshipping an oak tree. At this point, Boniface seized his axe and felled the tree down in order to stop the pagans from worshipping a false idol. The pagans were waiting for him to be struck by lightning but that never happened. Seeking the chance, Boniface converted them to Christianity.
Regarding the Christmas tree however, it is said that a fir tree grew out of the fallen oak which became a symbol of Christ. Being triangular in shape, it represents the trinity and from there came the idea of considering it a symbol of Christ and new life. It all started with Germany! From then onwards, people started mounting Christmas trees in their respective homes which is done even today!
My favourite Christmas tree would be laden with snow on its branches and light decorations with sparkly balls complemented with fairy lights. If possible, setting up the fairy lights in and around the house would provide an elegant tinge and lighting the bonfire would ensure heart and body warming Christmas this winter! Perhaps you could choose to cuddle or blanket up in your attic and read an interesting book all by yourself or go out with your fur coat on and stomp the snowy prints while enjoying the fall (while ensuring social distancing of course) 😉

On this sacred day, let us end on a pious note with the Lord’s Prayer!
“Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us;
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from all evil!
Lighten Up Your Hearth, And Remember The Jesus Of Nazareth!
