Christmas is much more than just another day. On December 25 Christians around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ—the most significant birth ever.

And being a national holiday in many nations, Christmas tends to be celebrated even by those who do not follow Christianity, in the spirit of caring about others, coming together and spreading cheer.
