O HOLY NIGHT BREATHTAKING CHRISTMAS CAROL

"O Holy Night Breathtaking Christmas Carol"This post is about “”O HOLY NIGHT” BREATHTAKING CHRISTMAS CAROL”. As billions of people around the world are going to celebrate “Christmas”, and taking the opportunity of the Holidays Season, let us have a look at the meaning of Christmas and the reasons why this period of the year is dedicated to family reunions, gifts and celebrations.

CHRISTMAS

As defined in Wikipedia, “Christmas is a Christian holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus. Christians believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. Christmas means “Feast day of Christ”. However, it is not pronounced as Christ Mass; it is pronounced Kriss-muhss.

The day known as Christmas Day is celebrated on the 25th of December (This date is different for Orthodox Christians). Christmas is one of the holiest times of the year, when it is believed by Christians that God sent Jesus to be born and to live among people and to save sinners from a life apart from God. The other important Christian Holy Days are at Easter when the death and resurrection of Jesus are celebrated. The season of preparing for Christmas is called Advent and begins on a Sunday about four weeks before Christmas Day. The Christmas Season (called Christmastide) ends on January 6, known as the Epiphany or the Twelfth Day of Christmas.

Christmas is celebrated by Christian people all over the world, and is also kept as a time of celebration by many people who are not Christian but enjoy the traditions. The traditions are different from country to country, but they nearly always include a feast, giving gifts or cards, and enjoying church or public festivities such as singing Christmas songs.

Christmastime, as it is often called, is in the winter of the Northern Hemisphere, at a time when there were already ancient festivals. Some of the traditions that are used for Christmas are older than Christmas, or come from other non-Christian traditions such as Yule. Other festivals at this time of year include Jewish Hanukkah.

Modern traditions of Christmas often focus on the giving of gifts. Stores use this time of year to sell a lot of goods, and so start advertising for “Holiday Season” shopping for at least a month before Christmas, often showing a Santa Claus”. You can find out more about Christmas HERE 

CHRISTMAS GIFTS

Christmas Gift

Many people believe that the tradition of gift offering started after the birth of our Lord Jesus within the first year of Christ's birth as the 3 wise men/kings brought offerings (Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh) to honor him.

SAINT NICHOLAS – SANTA CLAUS

"Santa Claus"

wikipedia explains that “Saint Nicholas (Greek: Hagios [“Saint”, literally “Holy”, Latin: Sanctus] Nicolaos [“victory of the people”]) (270 – 6 December 343), also called Nikolaos of Myra, was a historic 4th-century saint and Greek Bishop of Myra (Demre, part of modern-day Turkey) in Lycia. Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker (Nikolaos ho Thaumaturgos). He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas”.

CHRISTMAS TREE

"Christmas Tree"

Similarly, according to Wikipedia, “The custom of erecting a decorated Christmas tree can be historically traced back at least as far as 15th century Livonia and 16th century Northern Germany. According to the first documented uses of a Christmas tree in Estonia, in 1441, 1442, and 1514, the Brotherhood of Blackheads erected a tree for the holidays[clarification needed] in their brotherhood house in Reval (now Tallinn). At the last night of the celebrations leading up to the holidays,[clarification needed] the tree was taken to the Town Hall Square where the members of the brotherhood danced around it”.

CELINE DION LYRICS “O Holy Night”

 

O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Til He appeared and the soul felt it's worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoyces
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices
O night divine!
O night when Christ was born
O night divine!
O night, O night divine!

And in His Name, all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise his holy name
Christ is the Lord!
Their name forever praise we

Noel, Noel
O night, O night Divine
Noel, Noel
O night, O night Divine
Noel, Noel
O night, O holy Divine
