Did You Know - About Christmas?

Christmas Day is celebrated as a major festival and public holiday in most countries of the world, even in many whose populations are mostly non-Christian.

Christmas, along with Easter, is the period of highest annual church attendance.

Christmas is a holiday observed on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity.

December 25 is the date of the winter solstice on the ancient Roman calendar.

Many mythological figures, some known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas and Santa Claus, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season.

The Christmas holiday season has become a significant event and a key sales period for retailers and businesses.

The word Christmas originated as a compound meaning, "Christ's Mass."

In Christianity, Christmas marks the beginning of the larger season of Christmastide, which lasts twelve days.

In the early 4th century, Church leadership in Rome elected the winter solstice, December 25, as the birthday of Christ, and the summer solstice as that of John the Baptist; the equinoxes represented their respective dates of conception.

Nativity scenes were known to be used in 10th-century Rome.

The Christmas tree tradition is believed to have begun in Germany in the 18th century.
