I know.. i know… I am late with my wishes… but hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas and had lot of fun!! Hope this Christmas brings lot of joy, good health and prosperity to you!
Being from a non-catholic community i have never really witnessed Christmas celebrations personally, but from what i see around me and hear from my catholic colleagues and friends I am totally in awe of this festival!
So from little knowledge of this festival that I have, i recollect a very special memory from childhood.
Santa Claus is known to the world and i was no exception as a child! Every Christmas Eve, my father would encourage me to hang socks at the door and next morning i would find some chocolates in it. The enthusiasm and curiosity that I used to have that time knew no bounds. I used to ask my dad so many questions like
“How does Santa knows what i really like?”
“How does Santa know that I am ready with the socks and he has to put one in there?”
“How does Santa enter our house when we lock doors and sleep?”
“How is it that Santa always comes when I am sleeping?”
“Doesn’t Santa sleep in the night?”
This went on for years until one day when I got to know that Santa Claus is my own dad! And i was so happy about it, because after that i didn’t have to wait until Christmas to ask something from my personal Santa Claus 🙂
I also faintly remember that my sister used to decorate a Christmas tree , artificial one though and it looked very pretty.
I would like to hear from you how do you celebrate Christmas and what are your special memories of this festival.
