Christmas is celebrated all over the world. It is one of the most important celebrations for people belonging to the Christian faith. Christmas is now being celebrated in various sections of the world. However, the dates and traditions might be a little different everywhere. Christmas is one of the extraordinary times which people all over the world genuinely unite. For example, in Africa, an essential part of the Christmas service is the love offering, which is the gifts people give to honor Jesus. Everyone who joins the service has to bring a gift.

Christmas in South Africa is a summer celebration. In France, the nativity scene is a beloved custom correlated with French Christmas. Most of the homes in France display little clay figures called “santons” or “little saints.” Artisans make the Santons in the south of France throughout the year. These figures are often sold at annual Christmas fairs. For Indian Christians, especially Catholics, midnight mass on Christmas Eve is the most populated and important service.

This includes; lighting of the street with Christmas lights and with an amazing set of Christmas decorations. Christmas is all about the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Christians see this period as a perfect time to celebrate the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ into this world. Christmas is usually a public holiday, and that gives people the opportunity to unite with their families and celebrate the festival with them.

Yes, Christmas is celebrated all around the world. In most countries, Christmas is celebrated annually on the 25 of December. Christmas is celebrated to make the birth of Jesus Christ. Even in nations where Christianity is not the religion of the majority of people, you can tell when its Christmas season. Decorations are all over the place. Some countries, especially in Eastern Europe, celebrate Christmas in the New Year, on the 7th of January. Some of these countries that celebrate Christmas on January 7 are Belarus, Egypt, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Russia, and Ukraine.

Also, there are some countries that do not recognize the Christmas celebration both on December 25 and January 7. Some of them are Afghanistan, Algeria, Bhutan, North Korea, Libya, Mauritania, Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirate, Turkey, Somalia, Tajikistan, Kuwait, Uzbekistan, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, and Yemen.

Christmas is known to be one of the events that people may celebrate in different parts of the world. This may be one of the people’s favorite holidays, but it should also be remembered that this is not celebrated in various parts of the world. Some say that Christmas is banned in certain countries because they believe that this is more of a religious tradition.

For example, in Morocco, Christmas is not celebrated because this is a Muslim country. They do not really think that Christmas is a huge holiday, probably because they have different beliefs regarding Jesus Christ. Still, Morocco has the tendency to still look festive in December because of the colorful lanterns that they may place in public areas.
