Christmas Day-December 25-which celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the founder of the Christian religion, is the biggest and best-loved holiday in the Christian World.
According to the Bible, the holy book of Christians, God decided to allow his only son, Jesus Christ, to be born to a human mother and live on earth so that people could understand God better and learn to love God and each other more. "Christmas"- meaning "celebration of Christ "- honors the time when Jesus was born to a young Jewish woman Mary.
Mary was engaged to be married to Joseph, a carpenter, but before they came together, she was found to be with child. Because Joseph, her husband, was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
Christmas is the biggest festival in the western world, which people all over the Christian countries celebrate. It is on the 25th day of each December. Christians consider it as the birthday of Jesus Christ. But now many customs and habits are beyond religious meaning, The Christmas season begins five or six weeks before the exact holiday. There is always a shopping boom during this period. So it's really a happy season for shop owners.
On the night of December 25th, my mother took me to the supermarket, and the supermarket door was in front of the people.
There is a plastic Christmas tree in front of the supermarket, a tree covered with white and riotous with colour paper, cotton, there are a lot of shining stars like the bulb. That Santa wears sharp red hat, wearing red clothes, where to squirm, say hello to the people. Everyone has a good look, and no one wants to leave there.
I asked my mother, what festival is it today? So busy, mother told me that this is the Christmas of the western countries, it is like the Spring Festival in our country. Western festivals are spread to our country, no wonder it is so busy today.
There are many festivals in a year. There are Chinese traditional festivals, which belong to our festival - children's day, may, eleven, and other legal holidays. But what I like most is not the holidays, but Christmas.
Christmas is a festival for all the Christian countries in the world to commemorate the birth of the Lord of the Lord. Although it is not valued by the Chinese, we can still see the changes that Christmas brings to life. First of all, some businesses began to sell Christmas products. Shops were full of Christmas related products: reindeer, Santa Claus toys! They became popular products and loved by consumers. Secondly, the school has also carried out a lot of Christmas activities, what to guess gifts, Christmas party, give people a strong holiday atmosphere. Christmas is coming in so slowly.
It seems to me that Christmas is such an atmosphere and a mysterious holiday. And it also inspires me to cherish the time, only once a year. Once every time, we have grown up one year old again.

Every Christmas tree is covered with dazzling decorations, but there must be a huge star at the top of every tree. It's like a star guiding the eastern three doctors to find Jesus. And in traditional customs, only one owner of the family can hang the star of hope.
