Christmas: Its origins and meaning
Christmas honors the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem and has its roots in the phrase “Mass of Christ.” Although there is no historical evidence to support his birth on December 25, early Roman history claims that Jesus was born on this day in the fourth century.
The first Christian Roman emperor, Constantine, reigned from 336 to 337, when the celebration rose to prominence. Christmas is known by many different names around the world, including Yuletide, Navidad, Natale, and Noël in some regions.
Accept the joyous customs that make Christmas what it is. Every custom adds to the festive mood, whether it’s making cakes and decorating trees or going to mass, singing carols, and having dinner with loved ones.
Youngsters look forward to Santa Claus because they think he brings gifts on Christmas Eve. Christmas has religious significance for Christians, who celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection, the eradication of greed and hatred, and the promise of eternal life.
This Christmas, enjoy the knowledge of its rich past and the common customs that bring communities and families together in the spirit of giving and love.
