PM Modi greets people on Christmas

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday conveyed his greetings to the nation on the holy Christmas.

“Merry Christmas! The life and principles of Lord Christ gives strength to millions across the world. May his path keep showing the way in building a just and inclusive society. May everybody be happy and healthy”, the Prime Minister said.



Christmas or the ‘Feast of Nativity’ is celebrated annually on December 25 in commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The festival has great religious and cultural significance to billions of Christians. The festival marks the time of the year when families get together and spend a time of joy and warmth.

Since the early 20th Century, the celebration of Christmas has become more secular and family-oriented than religious.
