The original religious purpose of this festival, namely the remembrance of the birth of Jesus Christ in a small town called Bethleham in the Middle East, has gradually been eroded by the secular and materialistic emphasis.
Devout Christians (estimated to be approximately 10% of the population) remember the coming of Christ into this world in humble circumstances, just over 2000 years ago. They will attend church on Christmas Eve, and /or Christmas Day and will sin carols and pray and thank God for sending Jesus to be the saviour of mankind.
Nativity plays, the angel's visit to Mary to tell her hse is to bear a divine child and call him Jesus. Mary and Joseph and the baby have to say in a stale.
The story generates a colourful and interesting spectacle and is a great favourite with the children.
It also served to brighten up the cold dark days of mid-winter and to create a distraction form the discomforts of the season.
Christians adopted this festival and made it their own.
Christmas tree, the traditional dinner which usually consists of turkey, or goose followed by a special Christmas pudding and cake, the sending of cards, Father Christmas/Santa Claus, Boxing Day...etc. Many of these aspects of Christmas are enjoyable and heart warming, and can have symbolic meaning for those who participate in them.
The Christmas period may come as a profound shock particularly for those religious, this once deeply religious festival now means nothing more than an endless round of parties, an excuse for over-eating, increased intake of alcohol, and a huge spending spree, urging people to buy more and more expensive toys, drinks and presents. But in spite of the increasing trend towards secularisation, Christmas can still be a precious and meaningful time for those who believe its truths and sesire to see its message of peace, love and forgiveness spread around the globe.

I rarely change my taste in breakfast which always contains bread and a mug of milk tea.
Salad, which provides vitamins and nutrition, is needed for everyone. So it is compulsory menu for every week(at least) for me. It is as sound as a bell.
Study oversea is not an easy job, espeically for youngers who have never cooked themselves in their own experences. They tend to be malnourished. To eat healthily and easily is essental and vital for students study abroad.
Western food is too fat to eat, however, vegetable and fruit, which are the most easy and healthy food to prepare and eat, can be included in your every meal if you like.

Tony suggested make a ? mark in you mind always. It can help us to adjust again and again until the real one appears. Last time I had an idea about the website for parents with premature babies. The main aim is to improve the relationship between neonatal intensive care unit and parents. He fully agreed this dissertation.
After that, I searched on line for module's assignment. I found that there is a NICU already done it.
Today, we dicussed this topic again. I'm looking for the website and the quality and the parents of children with asthma. oh my god, that came from my assignment, that's not my previous thought. However, why not?
I'm thinking, and Tony recommended this one. to make clearly:
How the quality of the websites parents choose for their asthma children?
1. produce a questionary for those parents or healthcare professionals
2. this questionary will about what kind of websites do they choose
3. analysis the top 10 websites
that's it. is that easy for you.......
