The time of the year when Santa comes ho-ho-ing with Rudolph's red nose lighting up the hearts of little children (and some not-so-little-children) with the joy of giving, and more importantly, receiving gifts. For a non-Christian kid, it is about carols sounding from the neighbour's house, begging Dad to let me hang a star on the porch, and hoping that the jolly old man in the funny red suit doesn't discriminate on the basis of religion -" I know all the stories from the Bible, Santa". Christmas is about the colour Red, chocolate cake and wine. And the beginning of a long party session.
