Christmas is celebrated by Christians on 25th December every year to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. The Christmas celebration is joyous with Christmas trees decorated with colourful lights and ornaments. In homes, presents are placed under the Christmas trees and will be opened on Christmas Day.
In the evening, family members gather in their parents’ house in a happy and peaceful atmosphere. Children are not encouraged to attend church prayers at night, instead they are told to go to bed. According to belief, while they are sleeping, Santa Claus will come with presents.
On the morning of Christmas Day, Christians go to church for Mass or prayers.
