Christmas wallpapers and images featuring xmas trees, Santa Claus, reindeer, elves, presents, lots of snow and colourful, shiny decorations. Christmas is a fun and happy christian religious festival celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The festival is focussed around Christmas Day, December the 25th, which is denoted as the birthday of Jesus. The Christmas festival is usually combined with the New Year’s festival that takes place a little later on the last day of the year, December the 31st.
There are many traditions related to the festival including advent calendars, the giving of presents, plays telling the story of the nativity, nativity displays showing the baby Jesus being visited by the 3 wise men, the lavishly decorated christmas tree, christmas carols and Father Christmas (also known as Santa Claus, St Nicholas and many other names.)
The festive season is a time for family and friends to come together and be good to each other. Unfortunately, in modern times the religious and spiritual message of goodwill to all is lost in a consumerist frenzy of gift buying. Rather than taking the time to understand and love each other, people buy presents for each other that they don’t really want or need - the more expensive the better. But young children have a lovely time because they get loads of gifts from Santa and don’t need to buy any themselves.
