Jesus Christ the Saviour was born on the 25th of December and this very day, the Christians celebrate Christmas. But prior to this day, pre-Christmas is being celebrated everywhere.
Christmas is celebrated to mark the birth of Jesus Christ, who the Christians believe is the Son of God. The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. However, there are many different traditions and theories as to why Christmas is celebrated on December 25th.
