Christmas Treats
By chef kaviraj khialani

Since about 400 AD, Christians have celebrated the birth of Jesus. “CHRIST” means “messiah” or ‘Anointed One’- the title given to Jesus – and ‘Mass’ was a religious festival. In the West today, the real meaning of Christmas is often forgotten. It has become a non-religious holiday! More children believe in Father Christmas than in Jesus. Christmas day is a time for eating and drinking too much and watching television. But the real Christmas story is found in the Christian Bible. It is told in two different books. You may think that the story of the birth of Jesus, and the way that the West celebrates Christmas today, do not seem to have many connections.
