Tradition to technology: How Christmas celebrations have changed in digital age


Christmas appears to have misplaced its meaning throughout the globe in a secularised and a materialistic world. however, the Bible hasn’t changed nor the Church. The humans have changed over time because of transformation characterised through era, society and economy main to an altered truth

Over the years, information conversation generation has bombarded humans with the visual and auditory enjoyment which has converted their outlook. the good old days of sending and receiving greeting cards to friends thru snail mail had its own abnormal pleasing allure. Now humans WhatsApp their emotions and mind which are transposed into an ephemeral and digital space.


At the press of a mouse, it is possible to scour through purchasing websites to reserve presents. With this backdrop, an easy pastoral narrative which depicts the birth of Jesus over 2000 years ago at Bethlehem appears anachronistic. people like to discuss over how suitable it's miles to want their non-Christians colleagues, neighbours and buddies “satisfied Christmas”. over the years the normal greeting of “Merry Christmas” has been substituted with “glad vacations.” there has been a regular effort to drop the word “Christmas” and replacement it with a mundane and cosmetic “happy holidays.” Do people now agree with that to desire non-Christian US citizens, “Merry Christmas” amounts to a non-inclusive act?

Maximum Christmas carols are sung today inside the US and elsewhere had been written through Jews, obviously, those American Jews felt quite inclusive with Christmas. that is a clean example of the growing secularisation and the cultural relativism popular nowadays.

The modern-day man is not ardently attached to a monolithic spiritual or cultural identity. therefore Christmas could nevertheless be celebrated -- but sans the earlier non-secular fervour. The prophetic words of English novelist Charles Dickens in the tale of two towns can undoubtedly be carried out to the publish-present day situation of Christmas that's “the satisfactory of instances and the worst of times… an afternoon understanding and an afternoon of foolishness, a time of perception and a time of incredulity, a season of light and a season of darkness, a spring of hope and additionally a winter of depression”.

Nowadays connectivity that the internet has facilitated acts as the tremendous equaliser. whilst dwelling in a combination of identities, realities, cultures, gender roles, technology, economies, geographies and mediascapes, the concept of Christmas is thought in another way. The day isn't a long way whilst such attempts to attach a selected spiritual significance to any day of the year might wane into insignificance or be rendered absolutely redundant.

Perhaps a review of values may lead to an emergence of different social systems and Christmas could maintain to conform and articulate a positive mindset to existence. Christmas festivities would be discovered in future. but they'll not conform to beyond rituals however rather adapt to emergent socio-religious requirements.
