Christmas Wishes...

Christmas reminds me of the times we used to enjoy with our friends. There are two festivals that people in Kerala celebrate in a grand manner, irrespective of religions. One is Onam and the other one is Christmas. We used to be members of an association called Kerala Samajam where we celebrate all these festivals together. Till I was in tenth standard or so, I used to go for singing carols during Christmas times. We go to our friends' houses and sing Carols throughout night with Santa dancing n saying "Ho Ho Ho" and giving the children gifts n chocolates..
We used to sing songs like Jingle Bells, While Sheperds, Silent Night.... and some Malayalam songs too..

This is one carol which I like alot....

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Wish you all MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR too.. :)

  1. Wow!! We never celebrated Christmas like that but my Mom (oops!! I mean Santa) used to hide gifts for us in the stockings and it was always exciting to get up in the morning and check out the gifts. My best Christmas was in US in 1992 when I got a skateboard as gift...:-)
