Winter is here, and Christmas is just around the corner again. And it’s that time of the year where every one of us who are out of our home state goes back to celebrate Christmas with the family and loved ones.
You may celebrate Christmas anywhere but nothing beats the celebration in the village. The joy of celebrating Christmas in the village is something which we can never experience in towns or cities.
And I’m sure many of you who have experienced the Christmas celebration in the village will agree with me.
Here’s a Sumi Naga Christmas song by NagaGenous that perfectly sums up why Christmas is best in the village. I first watch this video in 2006 and since then, this has become my favorite Christmas song.
Ps: You may want to pack your stuff after watching this video!
‘Christmas is best in my village‘ Lyrics
It doesn’t snow in my village
Santa Claus is unfamiliar to us
Though we don’t get Christmas cake
yet Christmas is best in my village (x2)
Reindeers don’t roam our forest
Exchanging Christmas gifts is not our tradition
Bethlehem is a place we’ve never seen
Yet Christmas is best in my village (x2)
The divine aroma of Axone
And delicious sticky rice bread
Piping hot, millet and job’s tears
How I long for Christmas in my village (x2)
Jesus is born in my village
Our roosters’ crow with happiness
Our cow kissed the baby Jesus
Leaves its little calves (x2)
Come now let’s go to my village
There we shall find pure joy
There is love and peace
Christmas is best in my village (x2)
As I stay alone in my room, wearing a poncho to keep myself warm, listening to Christmas songs, and reminiscing Christmas celebration last year in my village, an immense sense of wanting to go home
