in various cultures, a festive dinner is traditionally served for the family and close friends in attendance, when the first star (usually sirius) arrives on the sky.
as is known to us all, wrapped gifts are usually given to children during their sound sleeping.they will be happy to open it next when they wake up.
it's believed that the gifts are given by santa claus amoung child.santa claus is generally depicted as a plump, jolly, white-bearded man wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots .the modern portrayal of santa claus frequently depicts him listening to the christmas wishes of young children.
writing letters to santa claus has been a christmas tradition for children for many years. these letters normally contain a wishlist of toys and assertions of good behavior.
christmas is a time for miracles.it is also a time when the dull things of daily life and the forecast of human hature gives way to a spiritual awakening.allow me to share with you one truly wonder of christmas.
our miracle story comes from an incident that occurred in flanders, belgium, at the dawn of world war i. on december 24th ,1914, german and english troops faced each other from the relative safety of their ditches across which no man's land lying between them. suddenly, the silence was broken, not by gunfire, but by the strains of silent night arising from the german position. it wasn't long before the english troops responded with a yuletide hymn of their own. then an amazing sight surprised the eyes of the english soldiers. a german soldier holding a small tree arranged with lighted candles began to walk across the land toward the english lines. this miraculous scene occasioned the declaration of a truce followed by english and german troops greeting one another, exchanging small gifts and singing songs of christmas. word of this incredible phenomenon reached the high command of both sides.
on christmas day, both armies moved from their positions to engage in the killing of war at other battlefields. however, on christmas eve 1914 on a field in flanders, there was peace on earth.
christmas is a truly amazing phenomenon. the day and season perpetuate a miraculous, historical event as an annual presence that challenges an often rough, cruel, and egotistical creature -- the human being -- to become open and amenable to their creator's vision. the great miracle of christmas continues in the performance of humane acts, moral honesty, and in the spiritual awareness of millions struggling to lead a life of grace.
Christmas Eve is coming soon, it is on December 24, the day before Christmas. At first, Christmas is very popular in western country, as the world gets globalized, Christmas Eve become a worldwide festival.

People have a lot of activities on that night, the young like to have party or masquerade, they hold the party all the night, celebrating the coming of the Christmas. For kids, it is a tradition that they put stockings in the chimney, the Santa Claus will bring them gifts that night. Actually, the gifts that the kids get are from their parents, the Santa Claus is their parents. Christmas Eve is like Chinese New Year’s Eve, both are important, the culture between Chinaand western countries has something in common.
On the night of the birth of Jesus, the shepherds who were guarding the sheep in the desert suddenly heard a voice from heaven telling them the news of the birth of Jesus. According to the bible, Jesus came into the world to be the king of the world, so that the angel passed on the message to more people.
Later, people imitated angels, and on the night of Christmas Eve, they preached about the birth of Jesus. To this day, it has evolved into a newspaper. Although Christmas Eve is a holiday for foreigners, we are also excited about this day.
On Christmas Eve, every family traditionally puts a Christmas tree in place. That night, the whole family reunion in the sitting room, around the tree to sing Christmas songs, exchange jpgts to each other, each other to share the joys and sorrows of life, expressing their blessings and love, and pray for happiness in the coming year. But we are students, we can't go home.
We went back to the dorm, took out the apples, and had no one else. Our dormitory bless each other, some snacks back to us, before we sleep, wash the socks in the bed, morning found stockings with presents, I know who is right, is my butt, I also give him put on the jpgt, our dormitory exchange jpgts with each other, we are put before they fell asleep...

Because there is so much homework to do, because there is so much homework to do, it is the night of December 25th when I think of this year's Christmas. I puked and said to my mother, "mom, I haven't had Christmas yet!" Mother said, "Christmas is a foreign festival, the equivalent of our Spring Festival. We are foreigners' festival, we celebrate our Spring Festival!" "But I thought about Christmas too much," I said. Why can't Santa give me jpgts?" Mother's eye bead, bow waist, smiling face to me to say: "Santa will also give you a jpgt!" I saw a bright, wide-eyed, eagerly asked: "really? Where is it? Where is it?" My mother smiled and said, "as long as you actively contribute to the manuscript, Santa will send you a jpgt in a few days!" As soon as I heard it, I hopped into my study and said, "I'll write it now!" My mother was happy again, and I smiled happily.
