【Weekly Community Event】Christmas is coming soon Reply:34| View:2153

Christmas is by far one of the most important, close to your heart, hopeful and peaceful celebrations almost all over the world. Christmas does not necessarily have to be about religion. It's so much more. It brings souls together, reunites family members that normally mind their own lives, job, worries. Christmas brings joy in your heart, in your home, on the streets. It's just a feeling that spreads like a virus (a good one though), even if you have a completely different religion, even if you prefer being on your own, even if you don't understand the language.. you feel the positive vibe emanating from all over the place.

We have all probably dreamt sitting on a nice rug, next to a fireplace, in a nice home surrounded my family and just enjoy the moment of being together. Sure, the pressies have a special kick to it and Santa should not fail to visit each and every one of you. What is more interesting though, is that even when the culture and history are completely different, when times are set on totally different values and beliefs, there is one thing that we believe you will find in any of them: the importance of family!

Take as an example The Dong Zhi Festival from Hong Kong (21st December). This is one of the biggest and most important festivals of the winter solstice in China and other parts of East Asia and you may notice it feels a lot like a North American Thanksgiving.

But the key element for this wonderful festival is that it serves as a time for families to get together and feast.

The origins of this festival can be traced back to the Yin and Yang philosophy of balance and harmony in the cosmos. After this celebration, there will be days with longer daylight hours and therefore an increase in positive energy flowing in. The philosophical significance of this is symbolized by the I Ching hexagram fù 復, which means Returning. Returning to your roots, to your family.

With that being said and with the Christmas knocking on our doors soon, let's talk about the importance of family. Why do you think this is or should be a given for humanity? If you know, heard of or you personally have any other similar celebrations/festivals that encourage the importance of family, please do tell! We would love to find out about more cultures all around the world.
The stage is yours!

Humans are pack animals by nature. We can't accomplish anything without others. That said, you can make anyone your family :>

Latvia (north-eastern Europe). Having a family is a blessing. No matter how dear they are or how much we hate them, Christmas is an important family celebration. Together we go to the church and forgive each other and pray for the others, we decorate Christmas trees and exchange gifts on Christmas Eve, cook gingerbread cookies and pies. It's like the only time of the year when we all are together.

Wishing everyone wonderful holidays.

In Greece is customary to spend those days with your family so no matter the distance between relatives it is an unspoken rule that on Cristmas day relativges of all over the country are gathered to the place of their eldest living ancestors (ususually grandparents) to feast and share memories of the past.

Hi, there are wars almost everywhere in the world for a reason. What happens in these wars always happens to innocent women and young children. We must pray and thank Allah to stop these wars.

We can't choose who our blood relatives are, but we can choose who we treat as family.
