Christmas is the most important festival in the western world.It falls on December 25th.In the United States,Christmas is as important as the Spring Festival of China.
Like the Spring Festival, Christmas is the time for family reunion.On that day,people who are far away on business hurry to return their home.They have a very luxurious meal,consisting of various food.After the family reunion dinner,they sit around the table and chat,just like what Chinese people do at the Spring Festival.
Christmas is the time for exchanging presents.Generally,American take two weeks to prepare lots of Christmas presents to celebrate it.On this holiday,gifts are exchanged among friends and family members.In addition,children are likely to get some gifts attributed to Santa Claus.
Christmas is the time for American to get away from their busy lives and have some fun.To celebrate the holiday,they decorate their Christmas trees,windows and gardens with colorful lights.When the lights shine brightly everywhere at night,it seems almost like daytime. Nowadays,Christmas culture has become a part of American culture, moreover,American Christmas traditions will be also still practiced.
It is said that there was a farmer served a poor boy on a cold windy chrismas eve and gave him a big chrisemas meal.The boy cut a fir trees branch and ed it into the earth.he said,every year this time.
There will be many presents in this branch.I wish I can pay back to your favor by this beautiful fir tree. After the boy left,the farmer discovered that the branch had grow up as a big tree.Then he realized that the boy was an envoy of the god.This is the origin of the chrismas day.
In western countries,whatever you are,everyone will prepare a chrismas tree to increase the happiness of the chrismas day.Chrismas trees are made of evergreen tree like fir trees and they represent the long lives.People put candles,flowers,toys,stars on the tree and they put chrismas present on the tree. on chrismas eve,people sing and dance happily and they enjoy themselves around the tree.
I like Christmas, it is just like our Spring Festival.
Maybe the Spring Festival is much more important and interesting than Christmas, but I like Christmas Day better. Because we can spend time with our friends and classmates during Christmas. When it is snowy, Christmas becomes much more lovely, just like in fairytales. I can imagine I am in a fairytale, the girl who sold the matches is my friend, the ugly duck becoming more and more beautiful and so on. What a beautiful place! So we can also call Christmas “Snowy Lovely Day.”
On Christmas Day, shops are red and green. There are so many Christmas cards, Christmas hats, Christmas dolls and many colourful things. So shops look very beautiful. We can give a card or a doll to our friends and say “Merry Christmas.” By the way, I think studying can also become much more interesting.
Christmas is coming, it also means a new year will come. Let’s study harder to welcome the new year!
