  • The story for the Christmas seasonMost people know that the simple meaning of Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of God in the Christian religion.

  • Christmas celebrationsCultural celebrations of Christmas include shinning light displays, the ever-present jolly old Santa Claus, group celebrations and singing called carolling, baked holiday cookies and cakes, and pine wreaths, lighted, decorated Christmas trees with wrapped presents. The spirit of Christmas at its heart is a festival to celebrate family, love, gratitude to others and giving presents to show appreciation to friends and loved ones.

  • In Europe, typically, family and friends gather together on Christmas Eve, on Dec 24, for a big turkeydinner, completed with Christmas pudding (a rich cake with brandy source). Everyone shares their stories of the year or brings a newsletter to read out for what has happened during the past year. Games are played after the dinner. In the US, Dec 25, the Christmas Day is normally the day all the presents are opened. Dec 26 is called Boxing Day in the UK, which means everyone opens their box of presents - the most joyful day for the children.

  • Christmas trees The tradition of having a pine tree as a Christmas Tree is believed to come from Germany. Since the medieval time, lighting a candle on a tree is common to welcome guests. Such practice has evolved into the Christmas celebration.

  • Santa ClausSanta is a saint in a long robe to a chubby, rosy-cheeked elderly man in a red suit, riding on a sleigh pulled by a team of reindeer. He arrives on Christmas Eve to deliver presents to children, typically from chimneys. Santa flew over house tops in a sleigh, he dropped coins by accident and they landed in some stockings hanging next to the fireplace to dry. From then on, red stockings were hung by the chimney in hopes Santa would fill them with gifts.
