CHRISTMAS 2017 – DECEMBER 25 (MONDAY)

The term Christmas is a translation of the Old English version – ‘Cristes Maesse’ which literally means the “Mass of Christ”. It is a traditional holiday in the Christian calendar and the most auspicious Christian festival observed across the globe on December 25th with much fanfare. December 25th is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Lord Jesus Christ, who is believed to be born on the same date at Bethlehem, the land of Jews. The festival is celebrated as a mark of respect to Lord Jesus, who is considered as the son of God and founder of the Christianity religion.



Christmas is basically celebrated by the Christians; but it is also observed as a day of celebration by other communities around the globe. Our modern Christmas is a product of hundreds of years of both secular and religious traditions from around the globe. Merry Christmas is a common phrase exchanged among Christians. As defined in the modern day, ‘Merry’ means cheerful or festive. However, the most widely accepted meaning of the word is peaceful or blessed.



Therefore, wishing someone Merry Christmas is truly wishing them a peaceful or blessed “Mass of Christ”.
