The world will celebrate Christmas on December 25, 2022 (Sunday), but the preparations for the same have commenced across the globe. Carnivals, festivals, events and get-togethers to mark the auspicious festivals have been organised worldwide.
This year, the festival will be celebrated after hiatus of two years; now, the world is in a different spot than it was back in 2020. Still, governments and organisations have been putting extra efforts in place to keep their congregations safe while still allowing them to come together and celebrate.
No matter where in the world one is, the spirit of Christmas is still alive. Whether it’s gathering with family and friends, donating to charity, or just taking a moment to appreciate the good in life, Christmas continues to be a time of joy and hope.
