Christmas is an annual festival celebrated by Christians, commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. It is observed primarily on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. Although Jesus Christ’s exact date of birth is unknown, it is documented in the Christian Scriptures (the Bible), Matthew chapters 1-2, and Luke chapters 1-2, that it occurred in the late 1st century B.C. in Bethlehem. Christians believe the conception and birth of Jesus are how the Son of God became a human.
