Holiday in South Africa - a christmas card




Some information / for inspirations/:
   "  Christmas is celebrated throughout the African continent by Christian communities large and small. There are approximately 350 million Christians in Africa. On Christmas day carols are sung from the Congo on down to South Africa.
       The most important part of their Christmas worship service is the love offering, this is the gift in honor of Jesus. Then at about 8 or 9 o'clock everyone makes their way to the celebration of the birthday of Jesus. Everyone who attends the service goes forward to lay down their gift upon the raised platform near the Communion table. Not one person will attend the service without giving a gift.
      Christmas in South Africa is a summer holiday. There is no snow, but it has many flowers, many beautiful varieties of cultivated and wild flowers being in their full pride.
     Homes are decorated with pine branches, and all have the decorated Christmas fir in a corner, with presents for the children around. At bedtime on Christmas Eve, children may also hang up their stockings for presents from Father Christmas."
