    Band aid do they know its christmas?

    which religions celebrate christmas

    Nowadays, after the decline of the old form of the villancico, the term is known more as a genre of song whose lyrics refer to Christmas and which is traditionally sung on those dates.

    Its name probably has its origin in the fact that they are compositions of a popular nature, sung by the villains or inhabitants of the villages, generally peasants or other rural inhabitants. They were sung at popular festivals, originally without a specifically religious theme, and the main themes were the recent events of the town or region. The genre was later expanded to include a variety of themes.

    The poetic form is influenced by traditional compositions of Mozarabic origin, such as the zéjel, which alternated stanzas sung by a soloist with a choral refrain. This gave way to other forms such as the cantiga de estribillo or the Galaico-Portuguese cantiga de refram.

    Within the evolution of the villancico in America there are also the so-called villancicos de negro or negrillos, in which the sound of the African dialects is imitated with onomatopoeias. Among these, those of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz are particularly well known, in which she augurs, among other things, the liberation of the black population.

    when christmas begins

    However, in order for the «Secret Santa» to be carried out correctly, certain rules must be followed, such as not exceeding the amount stipulated as the maximum (or minimum) that each gift should cost, not exchanging information among participants about who is the person who has touched each one, not exchanging slips of paper (unless someone gets his or her own name) and, above all, maintaining anonymity and not telling the person to whom the gift has been given who has been his or her Secret Santa or Secret Santa.

    There are some sources that indicate that it probably originated in Venezuela, where married women received anonymous gifts from secret admirers. Other historians suggest that it originated in the United States, when a number of people with more purchasing power decided to donate money altruistically and anonymously to people in need, to whom they secretly sent envelopes containing a few dollars that would serve to spend a good Christmas.

    the obscure origin of christmas

    Its origins date back to the 4th century and before it was actually considered a pagan holiday that celebrated the winter solstice and had the name of ‘Birth of the Sun’; but by the Roman era, the Christian church took this custom and adapted it to make it the date of the ‘birth of the son of God’.

    Another date that coincided in this day of ‘birth’ is that of Saturninalia, which honored the agricultural god Saturn, these celebrations were considered the maximum Roman festivity so it also functioned to mark the arrival of ‘The Savior’.

    It is said that the Christmas tree ‘represents the universe’ and is the ultimate manifestation of connection between heaven and earth, which helps us, is the connection with heaven and earth, so it helps us to unite these two states with spirituality.
