Christmas Festival in Sri Lanka

Christmas is a famous religious festival and celebrated by Christian people. It is held in December and commemorates the birth of Lord Jesus Christ. They are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ on the 25th of December every year. This holy birth took place in Bethlehem. Therefore they make a crib shed symbolize this. As well as they make the traditional Christmas tree and decorate it with toys, bells and illuminate it with colorful lights. In the ancient time the Saint Clare offered gifts for the poor children, therefore every Christmas day the gifts are given to celebrate.

And also they buy new clothes for children and give them presents on the day and they never forget the poor people and the orphans. So provide them clothes, foods and make them happy by talking with them. These are going to church at mid night and pray for Lord Jesus. Then they organize carol and stage dramas to propagate message of peace.
