Christians believe that Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, Israel (today a city of Palestine), then part of the Roman Empire, sometime between 7 BC and 2.

The story of the birth of Jesus is told: Jesus was born naturally by the Virgin Mary. This conception was by the miraculous power of God when Mary was a virgin. Jesus was born in a stable in Bethlehem and was placed in a manger because at that time there was no room left in the inn.

Later, Jesus was raised by Mary and her husband, Joseph, in Nazareth, a city in the North of Israel. When he was 12 years old, Jesus came to the synagogue in Jerusalem and amazed everyone with his knowledge. Later, Jesus chose 12 Apostles to go with him throughout Palestine to preach, heal and perform miracles.

By preaching the word of God, he had many followers but at the same time many enemies. In the end, Jesus was betrayed by Judas Iscariot, condemned by Pontius Pilate, the leader of the Jews at the time, and crucified by the Roman authorities.

Christmas is officially celebrated on December 25, but is usually celebrated from the evening of December 24 because according to the Jewish calendar, the time to start a day is at sunset, not midnight. The official ceremony on December 25 is called the “main day ceremony” , while the night ceremony on December 24 is called “the vigil” and usually attracts more people. Many Eastern Orthodox churches such as Russia and Georgia still use the Julian calendar to determine this date, so their Christmas celebration corresponds to January 7 according to the Gregorian calendar.

Although Christmas is a holiday for Christians, on this day everyone, regardless of religion, can enjoy the joy brought by the Christmas atmosphere.

It’s not only Christians who go to church, put flowers in front of the house and display the Christmas tree in the living room on this occasion; but many people of other religions are happy, sympathetic, feel the cozy and peaceful atmosphere because the Christmas season provides an opportunity to help them let go of all the petty hatreds and selfishness they once had.

In addition to the Christian meaning, Noel is a family holiday, a privileged day to gather, gather people, all generations in the family and maintain affection between people. People can share a common meal, a sleepless night, listen to a story, gather around the Christmas tree… Christmas day also becomes a children’s celebration, a magical night that almost always all childish wishes come true in the joy of adults.
