Christmas is the most
widely celebrated festival world over as well as the most
popular festival globally. We have presented here
not only the history, but also information on the different
icons that we associate with Christmas. You will enjoy thia. In
fact, these things have become so common with the celebration
of X'mas, when we see Santa riding on a reindeer sledge
with the stockings full of gifts and candies; or the
familiar coniferous green trees being decorated with tinsels
and stars, and gingerbread and fruits; or houses being
decorated with holly twigs and mistletoes - we know Christmas
has come. For, these are what Christmas mean to us, at least
symbolically. Let us now delve a little deeper into what they really mean and
their association with Christmas:
