What is christmas?

Christmas is a the celebration that marks the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus christ was born about 2010 years ago in Bethelehem, a city found in modern Israel. Jesus of Nazareth was born to the virgin Mary. The christian churches founded their teachings from the teachings of Jesus. Christmas is a celebration in remembrance of the birth of Jesus.

Before christmas, the christians celebrate a period of advent when penance is the main focus of all the christians. Christmas is a period when people strengthen their relationships with their families. This is also the time the people help the less fortunate members of their society. Jesus in his teachings showed that we should always be caring for the less fortunate and we should all be our brothers' keepers.

Christmas is a whole period of celebrations which culminates with celebrating the birth of Jesus christ on the 25th of December.

 For all the other people, christmas is a time of celebrating and taking a break from the daily grinding in life before stepping up again in the new year which starts shortly after christmas.
