Gearing up for Christmas

 “Christmas is the season of joy, of gift-giving, and of families coming together.”  In the month of December, we generally call it Christmas season or the month of celebration. Students of Snehagram are generally super excited in the month of December because of the holidays and celebrations. The preparation normally begins with the advent Season (Advent means ‘Coming’ in Latin. This is about the coming of Jesus into the world. There are four Sundays and 4 weeks of Advent preparation.) The students formed four groups among themselves and each group focused on different duties in the preparation phase. Most of the students took part in decorating the campus.  Beautiful and radiant lights encircled the main hall with glowing multi-color papers, craft designs, Christmas trees, gifts, and other glittering decorative items. It was a splendid sight to look at the hall with the exquisite decorations. Few were involved in making the crib. The boys were very creative as they came with the most natural crib with waterfalls. It looked fabulous in the night with the gleaming lights. The girls were busy baking tasty snacks for the celebration. So, the running up to Christmas was full of excitement and we readily waited for the big day.
