Christmas is known as the Mass of Christ; however, it is also sometimes referred to as “X-mas” in the American vernacular, and it is celebrated on December 25th.


The root of Christmas culture is based on Christianity.


Previously, this festival was only celebrated by Christians, but now countries from around the world have adopted Christmas traditions.


Examples of Christmas traditions include gift giving, family and social gatherings, symbolic decoration, testing , and many more.


This festive celebration is similar to our Diwali festival in that we give gifts to and receive gifts from relatives and friends.


The Christmas season occurs once a year, every December.

 Why Do We Celebrate Christmas?

 We originally celebrated Christmas because it is the birthday of Jesus Christ. The Bible explains how Jesus died to sacrifice himself for the sins of man, allowing men and women to be forgiven and enter heaven, which is why we all remember him on the 25th of December.

 The Charlatan of Christmas

 During the season of Christmas, the popular story A Christmas Carol is often told.

 If you are not familiar with it, perform a Google search of “A Christmas Carol” and read about it.

 This story will reveal more about the culture of Christmas and about Jesus.

 Jesus’s Family?

 It is often wondered if Jesus had a family. The question of whether he had a wife and son is much debated; however, no one knew if Jesus had a spouse or son.

 Church Entry

 The most common question I receive is whether it is permissible for Hindus to enter the church on Christmas Day. The answer is a resounding yes! Hindus and other religious groups are welcome to attend, but they are not permitted to eat the church's prasad. The church does not allow anyone but Christians to eat their prasad.

 Economic Impact

 The Christmas season has its own set of traditions and folklore. Because gift giving and many other aspects of the Christmas festival involve increased economic activity, the holiday has grown into a major event and a critical sales period for retailers and businesses. In many parts of the world, the economic impact of Christmas has grown steadily over the last few centuries.

 In Conclusion

 Now, Christmas is not just a celebration for Christians; it is celebrated all over the world with joy and happiness. However, we have learned there are certain limitations for non-Christians when celebrating in church, such as not being able to eat the church’s prasad. In addition, it is clear that the season is one of increased activity, from social and family gatherings to economic and religious pursuit.
