Christmas Day
A Birthday Celebration

Although Christmas Day is mostly thought to be a Christian holiday, it is also celebrated by an increasing number of non-Christians throughout the world. Christmas Day is observed on December 25th each year to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure and founder of Christianity.......The Reason for the Season!

Christmas Day has become a significant retail sales period. For many retailers the six week Holiday shopping season from Thanksgiving to the end of the year, is their biggest sales period of the year. With most of the sales coming at deep discounts!

It has an economic impact that can make or break a business depending on the strength or weakness of the selling season.

Customs that grew over the years started with exchanging gifts, greetings cards, attending a church service, decorating a Christmas tree and most importantly, sharing your time and meals with family and friends. Oh, and of course, patiently waiting for Santa Claus.

Some great ideas for sharing this Joyous Holiday with people outside of your family are to adopt a family. Whether it be a family from a church or a family’s name you get from a public help resource, it will instill a sharing attitude for your children that will be with them forever, when you deliver gifts or a food basket to a family that otherwise would not have a Christmas. Also, many stores and churches will have a tree put up that will have names of children decorating the tree, just waiting for someone to pick their name and buy them just one gift for Christmas. The needs are big, the willing aren’t as big. Many children will go without a gift again this year.

So, aside from the commercial aspect of Christmas Day, it is a time for family, friends and sharing. Most schools are out for a couple of weeks and other family has arrived. This is the time for big holiday meals and plenty of Christmas Games for the Family.
