My Idea of Spending a Happy Christmas Day
By remembering these memories one’s heart will fill with joy and happiness. My idea about a happy Christmas day is little bit different.
Everyone thinks to make his Christmas day happy and special as this day comes once in a year. People always try to collect memories on the day that can help them to cheer up in the time when sorrow and sadness would have covered them. I think that this day is specially meant to gather happiness by spreading happiness. You cannot remain happy if other people around you are not happy.
If you feel sorrows, grievances and sadness then you will be unable to make your Christmas day more charming and happy. Christmas has a great message of spreading happiness all around. So this message should always be kept in mind while celebrating Christmas.
I always think and try to make my Christmas day a little bit different. My preparation starts a months or two before. This preparation is as special for me as the day of Christmas. I have to gather some little items like candies, chocolates, presents specially made for kids on the eve of Christmas and above all some warm clothes for elders. When I complete my shopping I make little gifts pack. All this activity is time taken, so I started very earlier before Christmas.
On the day of Christmas I use to go church in the morning. After completing my prayer first of all I give these little presents to the team of children, present in the church for Christmas carols. Looking happiness on their face is a charming and pleasant scene for me.
The gifts pack of warm clothes, which I purchased for elders, is given to the old beggars who sat near the church or any stop in way of my house. When they wear those warm clothes in front of me, a sensational happiness is felt by me in my heart. I cannot express my feelings of that time.
As every one of us has made up his mind about celebrating a happy Christmas day with their near and dear ones. They should not forget the deserving and right persons on this beautiful eve. Those persons really need our attention, love, care and help. The main purpose of Christmas celebrations is not to merry making always.
In fact it is the day of acting upon the advice of God. He really wants us to help His needy and poor people. As God has blessed us with everything in this universe. Then it is our moral duty to help those who do not have all the blessings of the world. They will feel really very happy and will pray for us also.
We often see people around us who have all the blessings of the world. Even then they do not consider helping others. Although they can do that. They even do not feel the depth of worry or sadness one can have because of any reason. Some people are grieved because they have lost someone special in their lives forever. Some are sad because they do not have anything to celebrate the eve of Christmas.
I saw many people who even do not have the shelter to protect themselves, food to fill their empty tummy, clothes to wear and warm fireplace to sit around while resting all the Christmas. They do not have holidays even.
They have to work a lot even on the beautiful day of Christmas. Because if they will not do work, they will have nothing to eat in the evening. Such people need our attention and help. It becomes our moral duty to help them out.
There are many old age people who have been left alone in the old age homes. People once leave their elder ones there and forget about them. They even do not bother to visit them on the eve of Christmas.
How can they celebrate the Christmas then? Although the management of these homes try their best to arrange a happy Christmas day for them. But they cannot fulfill the room left because of the absence of their dear ones. Such people also need our special attention and care.
There are a lot of worries around us. On the beautiful eve of Christmas we should try to cover some of them by taking active part in social service.
