It’s Christmas Day!
Christmas symbolizes sharing. We celebrate this occasion to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. Every family was traditionally visiting the church to give thanks for the blessings that comes to them. Every one is busy preparing their foodstuff while waiting for Christmas Eve, others go to their relatives and children visit their ninongs and ninangs to have their gifts. Roman Catholics first celebrated Christmas, and then known as the Feast of the Nativity, as early as Ad 336. The word Christmas entered the English language sometime around 1050 as the Old English phrase Christes maesse, meaning “festival of Christ.”
I choose the pictures of children who do caroling, a Christmas tree, the gifts and the Belen. For me, Christmas is the day for the children. When I saw children caroling, I remember that when I was a child I do that also with my friends and we make a drum from a recycle empty can and we put a sando plastic on it and that’s it! We already have a drum! It affects me a lot because I remember that when we carol in a house, there was a man who celebrate the Christmas alone so he invite us to his house and he give us food and I see him smiling.
I also choose the Christmas tree because it represents a family binds together and a star on top of it symbolizes hope or the light. It serves as the light for the three kings to see Jesus Christ.
The gifts placed under the Christmas tree because we feel glad when we receive gifts and while waiting for the Christmas Eve to open it.
