How do people all over the world celebrate the coming Christmas?
origin of Christmas
Christmas is also known as Christmas, translated as "Christ Mass". It originated from the Saturn Festival when the ancient Romans welcomed the New Year. It has nothing to do with Christianity. After Christianity prevailed in the Roman Empire, the Holy See followed the trend to incorporate this folk festival into the Christian system, and at the same time to celebrate the birth of Jesus. But Christmas is not the birthday of Jesus, because the "Bible" does not record the specific day Jesus was born, and there is also no mention of such a festival, which is the result of Christianity assimilating ancient Roman myths. According to the "Bible", the three wise men from the East presented gifts-gold, frankincense, and myrrh when Jesus was born. They worshipped Jesus and expressed their honor to the human savior. This is the origin of the custom of Santa Claus giving gifts to children. British children put their long socks by the fireplace on Christmas Eve. It is believed that Santa Claus will ride an elk down the chimney at night and bring them socks full of gifts. Children in France put their shoes at the door, and ask the Holy Child to put gifts inside the shoes when he comes. December 25th of each year in the Gregorian calendar is the day when Christians commemorate the birth of Jesus, which is called Christmas. From December 24th to January 6th of the following year is the Christmas festival. During the Christmas festival, Christians from all over the world hold grand commemoration ceremonies. Christmas was originally a holiday for Christians. Because people pay special attention to it, it has become a national holiday, the country's most grand holiday of the year.
Christmas is celebrated on December 25. It is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two thousand years, people all over the world have been observing it with religious and secular traditions and customs. Christians celebrate Christmas as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. He is a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating the Christmas tree, attending church, eating with family and friends, and of course waiting for Santa’s arrival.
