The word Christmas comes from Cristes maesse or "Christ's Mass"

It is the time when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus.As it does not say in the Bible, no-one knows when Jesus was born, neither which day nor even year. One reason for this is that at the time Jesus was born people used the Roman calendar which was different to ours. It is now believed that Jesus was born between 7BC and 4BC.  Christmas is an annual holiday of Christians that commemorates the birth of Lord Jesus.

Christmas celebrations include various traditions such as arrival of Santa Claus, display of nativity scenes, Christmas trees and exchange of gifts and cards.  On Christmas Day, children hope to receive gifts in a stocking or under the Christmas tree from the mythical figure Santa Claus.  In the weeks before Christmas, they write letters to him so that he knows what they want. In some stories, Santa Claus wears a thick red, fur-trimmed suit and travels in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. In others he wears shorts and a loose, brightly colored shirt and his sleigh is pulled by six white kangaroos. In some families, individual members also exchange gifts.
