Christian Holidays

Christmas

Christmas is an annual holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus. It refers to both the day commemorating the birth and the Christmastide season, concluding with the Feast of the Epiphany. The date of the celebration is traditional and is not considered to be Jesus' actual date of birth.
