Conclusion: Christmas Meaning and Tradition
Christmas, popularly known as the festival celebrating Jesus’ birth, is a worldwide celebration that most people look forward to at the end of the year.
December 25th was believed not to be the original date of Jesus’ birth but was instead a Roman holiday that celebrated the winter solstice and the revival of the sun. In time, Christians appropriated this pagan holiday as the celebration of the birth of the Son.
The first recorded observance of placing a tree indoors during the Christmas holiday was in 1494. The first decorated Christmas tree was decorated with apples in Strasbourg in 1605.
At the end of the 18th century, gift-giving became a practice and a norm during the Christmas season thought to be inspired by the
Three Wise men visiting the baby Jesus and offering him gifts as well.
This practice evolved into the stories of
St. Nicholas appearing on his feast day, December 6, and offering toys and candy to children, which developed into the story of Santa Claus.
In countries such as Mexico and the Philippines, the travel of
Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem is re-enacted for a live audience on the days leading up to December 25.
Several non-predominantly Catholic countries also celebrate a few Christmas traditions of their own.
Here are the best Christmas quotes so you can bring your
family together, use this time to bond and rebuild relationships. (MUST READ) Also read:
