What Is Christmas Like In India?
What is Christmas like in India. If you are very busy you could almost miss it. About a week ago this thought came in our minds. Only one store that we saw had a "Merry Christmas" sign up. There are no twinkle lights. So you must focus on the things that you want to have have happen so they don't slip away in this strange land. There is gold trimmed silk in the cupboard with a small hole in one side so this can go around the base of the tree.
The tree you found in an old box is small but with a boost from a table the snow covered branches almost look real.
A fresh flower garland is not how you decorate at home but it is perfect for India. Eighteen people are coming for dinner so you want to set the scene so that they will feel at home for they are in this strange land too. You don't see Christmas so much here in India, but even though there are not a lot of outward signs, day by day you find that Christmas is in the hearts of the people.
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
