Glória in Excélsis Deo” in Latin means “Glory to God in the highest”.

Christmas is an annual celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, which fall on 25th of December. “Christmas”, the word originated from the term “Christ’s Mass”.

Christmas is celebrated as a major festival in many countries.

Homes, offices, Churches, shops and streets are decorated with special lights and glittering decors including Christmas trees, garlands and wreaths. Beautiful cribs depicting the birth of Jesus Christ are set up during the celebration, with spectacular statues of Mother Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, angels, shepherds, sheep, wise men and camels.

Special Christmas midnight mass is held at Churches on 24th December with singing of carols. Santa Claus greets and gives out gifts during Christmas.
