Christmas is a religious and cultural day meant to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Both Christians and non-Christians engage in this celebration because it has grown in popularity over the years as a time to make merry and to be with loved ones.
Christmas Day is important because it reminds people of the day the savior of the world was born. Christians believe that Jesus Christ was born to save all human beings from going to hell and that is why this day is highly regarded.
During Christmas celebrations, it is common for various families to have meals together and to share in the giving of gifts. People also remember the less fortunate in society by providing things such as food, clothing, medication and shelter to those who may not be able to afford them. The day is made colorful by decorations that include Christmas trees, lights, nativity scenes, garlands, mistletoe and wreaths.
Most Christians attend church services during the eve of Christmas and on the day of Christmas. Sermons are usually based around the birth of Jesus and its importance to all humankind. The day is also commemorated by singing popular carols with various communities engaging in different festival activities.
