Christmas is the part of the year when all the family are together and eat together. It symbolizes the birth of Jesus.
At Christmas a lot of people buy clothes, food or presents for their family so the people in their jobs have an extra pay for this time of the year.
We celebrate Christmas Day on December 25th but, on December 24th a lot of people have dinner with the family or with their friends.
Seven days after Christmas it’s New Year’s Day, so a new year begins. And this is another reason for eating a lot or meeting all your family.
In a lot of churches, there are a lot of Nativity scenes, with Jesus, his parents and a few animals. They are in the little house were Jesus was born. They are called Cribs.
