Christmas Has Already Begun Here

November 18, 2011  by: Paulose  Points: 12   Category: Celebrity    Views: 464

Christmas falls in December and there are more than 40 days for the festival. But the festival has already begun in the US with cheerful activities. Delighting displays are already decorating streets and Malls. In fact, the spirit of Christmas is perennial.


Christmas occurs every year by the end of December with the message, "Peace be on earth to men of goodwill." The message is to be lived throughout the year. Christmas tree and other activities grace the occasion with cheer and happiness. Christmas has already begun in Akron city near my village with "Holiday Tree Festival". It takes place to entertain kids in the children's hospital in the city.

News about the return of festival

Local newspapers have given great importance to the return of Holiday Tree Festival in Akron. Stow Sentry, my local newspaper, describes in details many of the arrangements going on to entertain the children in The Akron Children's Hospital. It is an occasion to entertain the children, to pool fund collection for the welfare of children's schemes and to enable participation of the local people in social activities during the advent of winter season.

The Akron Children's Hospital Holiday Tree Festival, scheduled to last for a week at the John S. Knight Center in downtown Akron, will feature visits from Santa Claus, along with hundreds of decorated Christmas trees and other festive items. The festival here is opened on November 19 and runs through November 27. It is clubbed with the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the Akron Children's Hospital.

Elaborate plans for the festival

There will be more than 300 decorated Christmas trees. There will also be hundreds of wreaths and miniature and other holiday creations which are supposed to be sold for the philanthraphic purposes of the hospital. The festival displays and activities are open to the public who can entertain, enjoy and enrich the proceedings that go to the hospital. There will be a list of musical entertainments which will surely entertain kids and adults.

The organizers have appealed the public to donate their time, talents and creativity. The businessmen of the area, organizations, individuals and children are to participate in these activities and support the public cause.

Holiday Tree Festival Contests and auctions

There will be a Mini Tree Decorating Contest and other contests to encourage the creativity of children and adults. There will also be an auction to highlight the event to benefit welfare schemes.

The spirit of Christmas festival

Nowadays, festivals have become occasions to promote business and encourage selfishness. Man is cocooning himself more and more, unable to pay heed to what is happening around him. Festivals have been commercialized and new marketing strategies are controlling everything.

The true spirit Christmas should be about love and kindness, not materialism and shopping. Christmas is awakened by the call of the commercial world creating a commotion about the season. But actually with all the stress and commotion of the commercial world, many of us end up feeling more like Mr. Scrooge rather than Santa Claus.

Christmas has already begun here to do our best for peace and prosperity of others and not to be caught up in selfish entanglements of extravagance. The spirit of Christmas is to make it a time of peace, love and goodwill to all.
