Interesting Facts

Christmas Day, celebrated on December 25th, commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ and is a culmination of the Advent season, blending religious traditions with various cultural customs around the world.

Interestingly, the choice of December 25th for celebrating Christmas is not mentioned in the Bible and was only officially adopted by the Roman Church in the 4th century, partly to coincide with the Roman winter solstice festival of Saturnalia.

One of the most iconic symbols of Christmas, the Christmas tree, has its origins in 16th-century Germany, where devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes, a practice that gained popularity worldwide after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were illustrated with a Christmas tree.

Today, Christmas is marked by a spirit of giving, reflected in the exchange of gifts and cards, and is celebrated with various traditions, such as singing carols and preparing festive meals, making it one of the most beloved and widely observed holidays across the globe.
