This day is a holiday in most of the countries. If the day falls on a weekend then a holiday is granted on some other day of the coming weeks in lieu. But not in all the countries, it is celebrated on 25th of December and is also not a public holiday in some of the countries.

The Story behind the birth of Jesus!!

There are many explanations that show that the birth of Jesus might not have taken place during winters but in the season of autumn or spring. One of those explanations goes like, it is impossible for the shepherd to keep the sheep on the hills during the winters. Evidently, during winters the hills might be covered with the large heaps of snow.

Why Christmas day is celebrated on 25th December?

None of us know, the real date of Jesus birth and neither there is any explanation about it in the bible then what might have been the reason that we celebrate it on 25th of December every year. In the early, times Christians have many arguments on when should the Christmas day be celebrated.

When was Christmas celebrated on “25th December” for the first time?

The first year in which Christmas was celebrated on 25th December was 336. It was during the reign of the Roman emperor, Constantine, who was the first ruler of the Roman emperor. After that, Pope Julius I declared officially that Jesus birth would be celebrated on 25th December.
