The people of our country come from many races. Each has its. Own beliefs, religions, culture and of course festivals. We, together, celebrate many festivals.
Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Cristmas are the major festivals that just about everyone takes part in. During there occasions, we visit one another regardless our ethnic origins. These are the times for merry- making and relaxation. The cities are deserted, people are dressed in their best and the sound of exploding fire-crackers fill the air.
Food and drinks are offered and taken freely, for these are times for enjoyment and not for worrying about dieting.
Besides these festivals., there are minor ones that are celebrated with less fervour. Hari raya Aidiladha, Chap Goh Mei, Thaipusam and Easter are some of these. They are, on the whole, celebrate by those directly involved only. Thus they are not on a grand scale.
Whatever festivals they are especially the major ones, I always enjoy, for usually, they are also public holidays. What day is better than a holiday, festival or not?
How you feel by something about festivals? I hope you all enjoy and thank God because we are as “rakyat malaysia” alive peaceful.
