Bible Term: Christmas

Christmas, initially a religious holiday, is celebrated on December 25 to remember the birth of Jesus.

Although Christmas has become a cultural holiday, its true meaning has nothing to do with Christmas trees, Santa, sleighs, chimneys, snow, and our many traditions.

Gift giving does have ties to Jesus’ birth, as his coming to earth is seen as a gift to all humanity.
