Merry Christmas 2020: Christmas Wishes, Significance and Astrology
Significance of Christmas
Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity. As per the Christian belief, Jesus Christ was born to guide humanity to the righteous way and restore the moral order. But for many people, Christmas also signifies a day given to complete enjoyment, excitement, fun and frolic. Christmas stands for the mass (the act of worshipping) of Christ. It is believed that when Jesus Christ was born, the earth was plagued with greed, superstition, and hypocrisy. He is considered to be the form of divinity who helped men of the world overcome those dark times. It is also the day when children await their favourite Christmas gifts from the legendary Santa Claus. You can read more about the Christmas Gifts based on Sun-Signs here.
Christmas is celebrated across the world and it has transcended the boundaries of creed and community. People celebrate Christmas by decorating the Christmas trees in their houses, displaying the scenes of the nativity on models when Jesus was born. The houses are decorated with Christmas lights. Christmas celebrations in churches include a midnight mass, as it is believed that Jesus was born at midnight. Christmas eve, the evening before Christmas is also celebrated with immense enthusiasm across the world. This year, the day of Christmas Eve, 24th of December will also set about Mars Transit to its own Zodiac Sign, Aries.
Ever wondered what is the significance of the Christmas Tree? Well, a Christmas tree is a symbol of Christ. It shows even in the winter, the tree stays evergreen, just like the undying spirit of Christ, a gift to humanity. People also decorate their houses with a star that is believed to have guided the three wise men.
And therefore, we can't ignore another important aspect of this festival; yes, its strong astrological side. While discussing an occasion so ethereal as Christmas, we cannot and should not discount the message from the heavens. All the more so because the exact date of Christ's birth has been traced using astrological information mentioned in the records. Jesus Christ was the son of God, whose coming changed the scenario.
Christmas Festival And The Callings From Heaven
The relationship between Astrology and the birthday of Jesus Christ is well established by the fact that the three wise men who were travelling to search the New King (Jesus Christ) were guided by a “Star”. It is believed that these stars belonged to a cluster, with bright Jupiter at the centre. Divine grace is important to make our life prosperous. Life can also change if we take the help of Astrology.

Christmas Festival Story & Position Of Stars
The exact birth year of Jesus Christ is not known clearly as there has been no concrete recorded evidence to prove the same. However, astrologers around the world have concluded that Jesus would have been born anywhere between 5 and 7 BC by working backwards from the period of the Lord's crucifixion. Some astrologers claim that Jesus was born in the year 7 BC, at 1:21 am in Bethlehem (present-day Israel). Also, read How People Celebrate Christmas Day based on Zodiac Signs.

Jesus And The Sun
There are different factors linking Jesus to the Sun. Jesus was identified with the Sun based on a verse of the Old Testament. According to an early sermon given by Saint Augustine, Jesus chose to be born on the shortest day of the year for symbolic reasons. He was born on the shortest day of the year from which the subsequent days begin to increase in length indicating the increase of light. Lord Jesus was called as “the light of the world” by John. Also, there is the belief that creation began at the Spring Equinox (March 25), with the conception or birth of Jesus on March 28, which is, in Genesis, the day of creation of the sun. For this reason, Malachi the prophet described him as the sun of righteousness.
