Like most countries, Australia recognizes Christmas as a public holiday. This annual memory of the birth of Jesus Christ has been celebrated and celebrated for hundreds of years throughout the world.
While historians estimate the year of the birth of Jesus anywhere between 2 and 7 BC, no one can point out the exact month and day. In the meantime, the Bible offers other specific details which are considered more important.
According to Christian scriptures, Jesus wrapped a static, inner cloth for the Virgin Mary, kept it in a crocodile, and the farm was surrounded by animals.
Listening to the news of his birth and under the leadership of Bethlehem Star, some intelligent men came to visit the newborn gifts of gold, frankincense, and smell. To date, Christians and non-Christians extend the tradition of gift-giving during this special holiday season.
In Australia, Christmas (or season of arrival) is also the week and month to Christmas, which has become the holiday season for families, shopping for food and gifts, and sending cards. For retailers, this is a boom season.
Christmas is a bit of Christmas curiosity in Australia. The country is in the Southern Hemisphere, which means that December 25 December December falls in comparison to the mid-winter like Europe, Britain and the United States in the summer.
Therefore it is not uncommon for shop windows to be full of toys and displays, which are covered with imitation snow spray and there are windows in pieces, even if it is moving out.
Decorations inside the houses are decorated with decoration, generally with red, green and gold trunks, pine trees included in tinsel and fairy lights, and often with a small birth view on the table or on the coffee table. And outside, many homes are replaced with a wonderful display of light and color.
Traditionally, Christmas is a gathering of large family groups that eat roasted turkeys, ham and vegetables, and finish the meal with hot berry pudding, fruit mince tarts, and cream or custard.

Songs sung in the weeks leading up to Christmas are called Christmas Carol. Traditionally, they sing songs about the birth of Jesus, but other songs are sung in Christmastime which is more related to secular characteristics such as Santa Claus and King Wenceslas as well as other business aspects.
In Roman and Medieval times, the songs we now call Christmas Carol were sung in Latin. Over time, these songs had passed through many ages in Christian history and were tweaked by people like St. Ambrose, Assisi’s St. Francis and Martin Luther. Now, some important songs mark the spirit of Christmas and they are known as Christmas Carol.
In Australia, shops start playing Christmas music on their sound systems from the end of November, if not the first. Often frequent, carol singers frequently appear in city centers and in the streets to bring Christmas cheer during Christmas, and as Christmas Day. Children sing songs during school and concerts, which often tell the story of Christmas – Jesus’ birth in the stable in Bethlehem.

Carol with candlelight

It is a favorite Australian tradition that started around 1938. These spectacular events were held every year during the week before Christmas Day and were established by Norman Banks.
The story is that on the eve of Christmas, the candlelight lights on the houses pass through the window. Through the glow, she saw elderly women sitting in the room and singing “away with a manager”, playing on the radio.
This inspired him to wonder how many people spent their holidays alone, and so he organized a public singing of Christmas Carol with participants having single candles.
Now, people sing Christmas Carol while organizing candles in public parks, music halls and stadiums in their respective towns and cities. The cities of Melbourne and Sydney also host a massive forum event, billing people famous entertainers.
Candlelight incidents are broadcast live on television and radio throughout the country as well as in Southeast Asia and New Zealand. The song “Christmas Lullaby” by Olivia Newton-John and Mannheim Steamroller is a lovely perennial.

The evergreen of branches around speaks to the unending length of time. In holy places, there are four or five candles in the wreath, which are singed independently at interims amid the landing. Many families gave floral wreaths at the front door of their houses.
Stars are a great feature of Christmas and are symbolic of the star, which inspires past wise men to go to the new baby Jesus.

In December, Christmas comes close to the time of Southern Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and it is in those cold northern cultures where the tradition of Christmas tree first began.

During the pagan period, it was common to bring all the branches to the house and places of worship during the mid-winter period in anticipation of the change in weather. Trees that lived in green every year, were symbols of life and hope, and how to win life on death.
It seems that this tradition extends from Central Europe to England and then extends into the United States during the 16th to 18th centuries.
Today, where Christmas is celebrated, there is usually a cone, usually trinkets in the house, to decorate the wires of bubbles and tinsel or pearls to bring a tree during December.
