Speech on Christmas Day 2019 in English for Students

CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION SPEECH

Good morning to the principal sir, teachers, and all my dear friends. As we all have gathered here to celebrate Christmas, I would like to say a few lines about Christmas in front of you.

I am very thankful to my class teacher for giving me such a great opportunity to the speech here on this occasion.

The festival of Christmas is called as the “Feast day of Christ,” it is celebrated as the Christian holiday to pay honor as well as commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. The Jesus Christ is believed as the son of god for years by the people of the Christian religion.

It is also celebrated by the non-Christians as a cultural holiday in December. It is observed in the winter season. Everyone waits for the arrival of Christmas very eagerly.

It is observed every year on the 25th of December with huge preparations and decorations. Christmas tree, Christmas cards, Santa Claus, gifts, etc. matters a lot at this occasion.

25th of December is the most important day of the year for Christians. They also celebrate the festival of Easter to remember the death and resurrection of the Jesus Christ. People start preparations for Christmas which is called as the advent, and it begins on Sunday of four weeks before the Christmas.

The whole season of Christmas is known as Christmastide which ends on 6th of January means the 12th day of Christmas during which the people remember epiphany.

There is the largest Indian Christian community in Mumbai where mostly Roman Catholics are found; they make this festival a glory of India in the winter season.

On this festival, a midnight mass is considered as the most essential service for Christians especially the Catholics during which whole family members go to the mass and enjoy a massive feast of different delicacies.

They are also involved in giving and taking the gifts to each other. Before the festival, they enjoy decorating churches with poinsettia flowers and candles, especially for the Christmas Eve midnight Mass service.

People start greeting each other from few days before the festival by saying and wishing each other happy Christmas or Merry Christmas, Subh Christmas, Christmas Mubarak, etc. through Christmas cards or giving gifts. They decorate the Christmas trees in the houses, or the garden is the main custom and tradition of Christmas celebration. The peoples also decorate their homes and churches with a candle and electric bulbs.

The Christians living in southern India they lit some small oil burning clay lamps on roofs to symbolize that Jesus is the light of the whole world. They also sing a particular song known as carol song and perform other rituals in the church.

At some places, people follow the tradition of cutting the Christmas cake to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Santa comes in the midnight with a lot of gifts for children and distributes it among them. There is a tradition of fasting in the Catholics, they keep fast and do not eat from 1st to 24th December and eat after the midnight mass service. Merry Christmas to all!

Thank you
