Seasons come and go by but the joy and memories remain until we are back to

Christmas again to create new ones. It’s the last day before saying goodbye to your bows and hollies. It is usually the last day families keep the Christmas decorations, Christmas tree and the stars and come January 7, families start taking these items down. January 6 marks the feast of Epiphany, or Three Kings’ Feast.

 

 

Café gets a cross section of views of how they feel about this day and the end of the Christmas – New Year’s festive season:

 

 

It’s my first yuletide away from home so it really feels different. But putting this aside, Christmas was a reminder of good things like love, kindness and family togetherness. People tend to be kind and more thoughtful and generous during this period. As the season comes to an end, it makes me feel hopeful that the world could be a better place if people can bring to their everyday lives the love and kindness this season has.

Feeling nostalgia. How I’m going to miss the times I had during Christmas season with my family and friends until next Christmas. It’s kind of a sad feeling too.

It saddens my heart to know that it is almost the end of this wonderful season. Even though Christmas ended I want the feeling of love and togetherness to remain in our family. This keeps us in a good mood of waiting for another prosperous year.

In Goa, the three kings’ feast is celebrated at Reis Magos Cansaulim and Chandor. It is a very big festival where three youngsters dressed as kings ride on horses till the church. There is a big fair and a band is played. Its significance is the end of Christmas season. During Christmas, we are always so engrossed in preparing sweets, setting up cribs, buying new clothes and meeting relatives. Now is the end of the season, putting all the decors back and getting back to work. I pray this joy of Christmas continues even on ordinary days.
