US President Trump's business houses prefer the greeting 'Happy Holidays' rather than 'Merry Christmas!'
There is news circulating prominently indicating the US President's business houses are using 'more inclusive' greetings during festive season 'Happy Holidays!' rather than 'Merry Christmas'.

The is a general feeling among a good majority people that Trump's decisions and doings were making the festive season less merry since the market forces and materialism hijacked the noble spirit of Christmas festival.

Christmas is the world's biggest annual celebration to commemorate of the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25, it is a public holiday in most nations and a large number of people from other religions too join the celebration and festivity.

Christmas is marked by special decorations, gift giving, and exchange of good wishes, feasting, music and caroling along with special prayers in the churches. On this day Christians install Christmas trees, display festival lights, hold nativity scenes and holly.

For children, it is the most waited day as Santa Claus or Father Christmas brings gifts to them. Since the festival is celebrated in most parts of the world and a heightened activity of gift-giving, decorations and feasting, the world markets go abuzz with shopping, tourism and business.

Here are a few select quotes that highlight the true spirit of Christmas.

  • A good conscience is a continual Christmas. ~Benjamin Franklin
  • Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart. ~Washington Irving
  • Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.  ~Calvin Coolidge
  • Christmas is not an eternal event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart. ~Freya Stark
  • Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.  ~George Mathhew Adams
