Christmas Holiday celebrations 2021 Live Updates: Celebrated on December 25 of each year, Christmas marks and commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and the second of the Holy Trinity of Christianity (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit).
Christ, who was said to have been miraculously conceived, was born in a stable in Bethlehem to Mother Mary and Saint Joseph. Jesus of Nazareth was a spiritual leader, whose teachings formed the foundation of Christianity.
Although the Bible does not mention a specific date for his birth, Emperor Constantine, the first Christian Roman Emperor, designated December 25 as “Christmas,” a day to commemorate the birth of Christ. The United States declared December 25 a federal holiday in 1870 and since then the holiday has been widely recognized.
This day recalls Christ’s enormous sacrifice for humanity and his lessons on how to be a noble, for he is the emblem of all divinity. It is said that God sent his son Jesus into the world to save humans from all evil. Christmas is also known as the “Feast of the Nativity” and has cultural and religious significance for the Christian and non-Christian community.
During the pandemic, the celebrations may look a little different. But if you take all the necessary precautions, you may be able to bring festive joy with your loved ones. Simply follow all Covid protocols.
