Christmas Unit Study




Important things to know about Santa's favorite day.

Christmas time for various cultures around the world varies due to cultural differences. A universal view about Christmas is that it is a time of year that should be celebrated with joy and giving. Although a general view about Christmas is that it formed from the day that Christ was born, the truth is that Christmas originated by the Romans as a holiday for a pagan Persian light god. The 25th of December is actually a day that was thought of by the Romans, and does not signify the birth of the Christian religious figure Jesus Christ.
