Christmas is something many people around the world celebrate, from Christians (that makeup more than one billion of the 7.7 billion people that make up the world population) celebrating Christ’s birthday. Or even a day of gift-giving or exchange for other non-Christian. Its significance has come to question, time, and time again.
What is Christmas?
