What does Christmas mean?

Postby kazi » Mon Dec 28, 2009 12:59 pm

What does Christmas mean to those who celebrate it? What is the significance of Santa Claus and christmas tree and its decorations? I never understood it all.

From Dickens' story and the general behavior of people around me, I can feel that Christmas has profound meaning for Christians. But I never really could comprehend the relation between the spiritual and cultural aspects of its celebration. If anybody can explain what Father Claus, the tree, its decorations, the stockings, etc. stand for, that would be great.
"Mother and motherland are more precious than heaven." But that does not mean we must cling to our mothers. The least I can do for Nepal is to bring awareness among the Nepali people. And this Nepali forum is the platform for me.
