December Is In, Time for Christmas Melodies!

With December in, it’s time to play Jim Reeves’ Christmas melodies, listen to bells jingling and sing Feliz Navidad!

A white Christmas? Well, if that’s the ask, swathe yourself with multi-layered clothing, including thermal wear, gloves and caps/masks fit for sub-zero climes to warm your hands/ears, not to forget snow shoes, and hit the alpine terrain.

For a true Biblical experience, loosen up the winter paraphernalia a bit, head to the Holy Land from the winter land and be blessed by taking a bow in Bethlehem and Jerusalem and walking through paths that Jesus took.

This is precisely how I kicked off the 2018 Christmas season two weeks ago – visiting Switzerland to savour the charms of snow-capped mountains and Israel for fulfilment of a dream that transcends religion as it is a place considered holy by people of different faiths – with Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, in Palestine territory and His crucifixion/resurrection sites nestling amid Israel’s most famous mosque in Jerusalem (Dome of the Rock).

For Christians, it holds special significance, bringing together Protestants, Catholics and people of other denominations in a demonstration of religious amity.
