What is Christmas?


What is Christmas? Have you ever wondered why so many people around the world celebrate the day on December 25th, even if they're not Christian? 

Christmas has been such a huge part of Western culture for centuries and the celebration has evolved throughout that time. It is important to remember, and reflect upon, the true meaning of Christmas; Jesus Christ was born to help free us from sin and unite humanity with God.

Christians celebrate Christmas because it's one of the most important days in the Christian calendar. God became human and joined us on earth - that's incredible! Definitely worth celebrating, don't you think?
