Jesus Born on 25th December, Truth or not
The church leaders once decided to choose a date for their sacred cult activities while there were many popular and different kinds of celebrations. So, after all, the discussion they chose to celebrate their cult activity on 25th December, 336 A.D. in Rome.
They mainly challenged a rival religion, called the Cult of Mithra, which this secluded community used to celebrate the birth of their god of light on 25th December as well.

Christmas is the Top listed Important Day
This one is quite astonishing to many people. Despite Jesus' birth, enchanting people, gifting, a Christmas tree, a placard, and a gift card, this day is not the most important day at all. People instead love to call ‘Easter’ an important day as it symbolizes Jesus’ eternal life rising from death.
Christmas is definitely a winner in the context of Jesus Christ’s birth but people take Easter more in their hearts. As Jesus promised to live his eternal life resurrecting from death for the whole of humankind, it easily catches all the importance from others.
Moreover, people celebrate Easter over 2 months at a stretch, on the other hand, Christmas barely moves over 7-8 days!

Using ‘Xmas’ instead of Christmas Considering Disregarding
Removing ‘Christ’ from Christmas is a sin! Is this fact or fake? Many people think removing Christ’ from Christmas is sacrilegious. Replacing Xmas represents secular X that degrades Jesus’ dignity. Is this the truth?
Take a look at the ‘Christmas’ word, the word ‘Christ’ comes from the Greek word "Χριστός" Do you see anything similar? Notice the first letter, ‘X’ and it means, ‘Chi..’  The word, ‘Chi’ writes as ‘X’ in the Roman alphabet.
So, taking all this into account, Xmas in place of Christmas is in no way a demeaning matter rather it’s quite logical.

In conclude, Christmas is all about happiness and joyous moments that put us all together in a place.
