Christmas is the time to indulge in merry making and treat with excessive craziness. I have lots of good memories associated with this festival. Christmas takes me back to my school days, and those wonderful memories. I studied in a Catholic missionary convent, where Christmas was celebrated with great pomp and show. Apart from the various celebrations, we used to have lots of fun traditions, like decorating our school cathedral, the Christmas tree, singing carols, attending the midnight mass, exchanging gifts, cards, and not forgetting the delicious cake. All these made this festival a pleasant occasion for me to cherish forever.
Christmas is perhaps the only festival celebrated by majority of people around the globe. Here is a list of how to wish "Merry Christmas" to all your loved ones, in various languages.
