All around the world, Christmas is known by different names; in Germany, people call it Yuletide, Natale in Italian, Noel in French, and Navidad in Spanish. While the celebration of Christmas has become much more temporal and family-oriented rather than religious since the early 20th century, the believers still attend church masses, participate in various charity events, and also carol for the glorification of the lord now also.
Christianity experienced strong opposition to Christmas during the first two centuries as people viewed Christ as a martyr for all. Traditionally, they celebrate saints and martyrs on their martyrdom rather than their birthday. It was considered their actual birthday rather than their birth. Though nobody knows the precise birth date of Jesus Christ, the account of their birthday is not even mentioned in the bible also. Hence, everyone questions why we celebrate Christmas on December 25th.
However, Christmas was the first event recorded to take place on December 25th in 336, during the reign of Emperor Constantine. There are many other theories about why the Christmas celebration occurs on December 25th. A few of them are as follows. In early Christian tradition, the Annunciation of Mary took place on March 25th – which is currently celebrated on March 25th. Nine months later, December 25th occurs, marking the birth of Jesus.
