My Favorite Holiday: Christmas
Christmas has come and gone. Regardlessly, giving thanks and proclaiming yourself to those around you should be more exercised. During Christmas, spending time with the people you care about means so much more than anything you can possibly buy. Families as well as friends gather together in their homes to spend time with each other and have fun. Not until they have celebrated Christmas will they realize how interesting it is! On the other hand, if you happen to celebrate Christmas, you may be puzzled by all sock themed decorations. This custom originated in the 18th Century during the rule of the popes. Children imagined that Santa Claus would visit them to fill their socks with wonderful gifts such as high class chocolates; or a bunch of coal if they are bad. While gifts are not the ultimate gauge to your affections, there are times when a good present speaks a thousand words. Actually, gifts are also a special thing during Christmas. In order to thank the family as well as the friends, people send presents to all of them. Christmas trees are also an incredible decorations during this time. There is a special custom in which gifts are placed under the Christmas trees. They symbolize good luck for the new year. At first, people thought these trees were boring without any special lights or decorations. But the colorful light bulbs are the saving grace of the Christmas trees. Children also come to the highest Christmas trees in town and sing the Christmas carol in order to expect good luck as well as good harvest. But, because Christmas is celebrated only in winter, the time is very short. So that is why Christmas has come and gone. Although the fun of Christmas is extremely short, we should wisely spend our time during Christmas. There is a saying: ``Yesterday is a history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today ( which means Christmas ) is a gift – that is why its called the present!
