प्रसंगवश : मुझे सारे त्यौहार मनाने हैं

कुछ दिनों पहले की बात है, मैं पिछले साल दिसंबर में बड़ा दिन (क्रिसमस) के त्यौहार पर गिरिजाघर जाने की बात सोच रहा था। जमशेदपुर में बिताए बचपन के दिनों में मिशनरी स्कूल में पढ़ाई करने की वजह से मुझे क्रिसमस का त्यौहार बेहद अच्छा लगता है। हमारे स्कूल में एक चैपेल हुआ करता था और हमारे टीचर्स जिन्हें हम सिस्टर, ब्रदर या फादर पुकारते थे, हमें क्रिसमस के दिन चैपेल में जाने की अनुमति देते थे। हमें केक और कूकीज़ भी खाने को मिल जाया करती थीं, जिसकी वजह से त्यौहार मनाने का हमारा उत्साह भी दुगुना हो जाता था।
