Christmas is fast approaching. The city of Kochi is decked up with a riot of colors. The shops have started selling stars, cribs, trees, decorative lights, Santa Clause etc. The is a rush for buying these things for decorating the houses, offices and institutions, churches, parks etc.
Christmas is the most colorful festival in India. A time for joy, merriment, carols, feasting,dancing etc. because Jesus Christ, Son of God, was born in this world in human form to save mankind from eternal damnation. Actually, after our first parents, Adam and Eve, sinned against God and were thrown out of Paradise, God did not abandon mankind. HE sent several Prophets to guide us. However, man continued to live in sin. Finally God sent HIS only begotten Son to save mankind so that those who believed in HIM will be rewarded with eternal happiness in Heaven and others will be damned to everlasting suffering in Hell.
Here are some photos from Kochi for your visual pleasure.
