Children of All Saints’ Cathedral celebrate Christmas Tree programme

Nagpur: Every year, Christmas is celebrated on December 25 to commemorate the birth anniversary of Jesus Christ. This auspicious occasion is a prime festival of Christian community and hence, is celebrated zestfully around the world.

Christmas Trees are one of the main attractions for children. This is because gifts are kept under the tree for them. All Saints’ Cathedral like other Churches decorated their Christmas Tree elegantly to celebrate the festival with great zeal for the Sunday School Children. This is done 8-10 days ahead of Christmas so that all the children could come together, perform the skits, sing, dance and later receive gifts from Santa Claus before they all go for vacations.
