Of Christmas, Santa Claus and Christmas cakes
As Christmas approaches, the festive fervour overpowers everyone and, try as hard as he can, it is difficult not to succumb to the charms of Santa Claus, his shiny nosed reindeers, the jingling bells and the delicious cakes.

CHRISTMAS WAS celebrated primarily by the Christians to commemorate the birth of Lord Jesus Christ – but, today, thanks to the electronic media, it has become a festival of people irrespective of their religious leanings.


The singing of Christmas carols at midnight and the religious programs in the churches prove that men, even in this superfast electronic age, seek the blessings of the Lord and pray that He looks after them and their children.


The time is end December and, all those who are employed have lapsable leaves. When one adds to that the school winter vacations, one has all the ingredients necessary for festivities.  Therefore, the glittering shopping malls are attractions that one can hardly resist to miss. And – when one has the credit card at his disposal, a bit of exceeding the budget is not a big deal – after all, the deficit can always be managed by better management of finances in the following year which would be but a few days away.


The embellishing of cakes of various sizes takes one’s breath away – the amount of patience that goes into the decorations has to be appreciated.


For those who love to travel, this is a beautiful time – it is winter and carrying woollen clothing is a better option than lugging around raincoats and umbrellas with fears of landing in water logged roads or train tracks submerged in water – or encountering rough weather in flight.
