Christmas Celebration… why is Christmas on the 25th December?

Christmas is celebrated to remember the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the Son of God

Christmas is one of the most important as well as popular festivals celebrated throughout the year. Christmas is the kind of festival that is so popular that it is celebrated in more than 160 countries throughout the world, by adults and children alike.

Christmas is celebrated by those following the religion of Christianity, though the festival has universal appeal, across all faiths. There are many ways to celebrate Christmas and the manner in which Christmas is celebrated is different in many countries, even though the Christmas spirit is universal in nature.

The name ‘Christmas’ comes from the Mass of Christ (or Jesus). A Mass service (which is sometimes called Communion or Eucharist) is where Christians remember that Jesus died and then came back to life. The ‘Christ-Mass’ service was the only one that was allowed to take place after sunset (and before sunrise the next day), so people had it at Midnight! So we get the name Christ-Mass, shortened to Christmas.

Christmas is now celebrated by people around the world whether they are Christians or not. It’s a time when family and friends come together and remember the good things they have. People, and especially children, also like Christmas as it’s a time when you give and receive presents!

Origin of Christmas

No one is aware of the actual birthday of Jesus! No date is given in the Bible, so why do wehave fun it on thetwenty fifth December? The early Christians genuinely had many arguments as to when it must be celebrated! Also, the start of Jesus possibly did not occur in the 12 months 1 however barely earlier, someplace between two BCE/BC and 7 BCE/BC, perhaps in four BCE/BC (there is not a zero – the years go from 1 BC/BCE to 1!).

The first recorded date of Christmas was celebrated on December twenty-fifth was once in 336, in the course of the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine (he was once the first Christian Roman Emperor). But it was once no longer a reputable Romankingdom competition at this time.

However, there are many one-of-a-kind traditions and theories as to why Christmas is celebrated on December 25th.

Walk 25th was additionally the day a few early Christians thought the world had been made, and furthermore the day that Jesus passed on when he was a grown-up and they believed that Jesus was considered and had kicked the bucket around the same time of the year.

The date was picked as it was close to the Walk/Vernal Equinox (when the date and night are of equivalent length in Spring).

Jesus kicked the bucket on Nisan 14 in the Jewish schedule – the date of the Jewish celebration of Passover. The Jewish schedule is lunar (in light of the moon, as opposed to fixed dates) thus it moves around with dates on the Gregorian schedule.

Holy person Ephrem the Syrian (306 – 373) instructed that Jesus was imagined on Nisan 10! So Walk 25th turned into a ‘fixed’ date on the Gregorian schedule to check these ‘moveable’ dates on the Jewish schedule.
