Christmas, an annual holiday, usually celebrated on December 25, commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ. While it is celebrated in unique ways in different countries, family members often help to decorate the tree and home with bright lights, wreaths, candles, holly, mistletoe, and ornaments. Church services, carols, food and gift giving are important parts of this celebration.
www.whychristmas.com is one of the largest Christmas information sites on the web. It was launched in November 2000 by web-designer James Cooper, originally created for teachers, looking for a site that was child friendly and wasn’t trying to sell kids something. It includes Christmas Traditions and Customs, Christmas Around the World, Fun Activities and more, all without advertising.
