    Christmas (literally, the Mass of Jesus Christ) is a traditional holiday observed on 25 December. (In most Eastern Orthodox Churches, even where the civil calendar is the Gregorian, it is observed according to the Julian calendar, by which that date however coincides with the predominant reckoning of 7 January.) It is celebrated by most Christians to mark the birth of Jesus, which is believed to have occurred in Bethlehem in the Roman Province of Judea between 6 BC and AD 6. Christ's birth, or nativity, was said by his followers to fulfill the prophecies of Judaism that a messiah would come, from the house of David, to redeem the world from sin. Efforts to decide upon a date on which to celebrate his birth began some centuries later.Christmas has also acquired many secular aspects, which are sometimes celebrated more often than the birth of Jesus. Many Christmas traditions originated with pre-Christian observances that were syncretised into Christianity. Examples of this process are the northern European Yule, and the Winter Solstice celebration found in many older as well as recent pagan celebrations.In Western countries, Christmas has become the most economically significant holiday of the year. It is largely characterized by gifts being exchanged between friends and family members, and the appearance of Santa Claus. Various local and regional Christmas traditions are still practised, despite the widespread influence of American and British Christmas motifs disseminated by globalization, popular literature, television, and other media.The word Christmas is a contraction of Christ's Mass, derived from the Old English Cristes mæsse. It is often abbreviated Xmas, probably because X resembles the Greek letter Χ (chi) which has often historically been used as an abbreviation for Christ (Χριστός in Greek).

    聖誕節或耶誕節(語源來自基督彌撒)是基督教曆法的一個傳統節日,它是基督教徒慶祝耶穌基督誕生的慶祝日。所有的基督教教堂都會先在12月24日的平安夜舉行崇拜,然後在12月25日慶祝聖誕節(也有人認為耶穌不是在12月25日出生的),而基督教的另一大分支東正教的聖誕節慶祝則在每年的1月7日。根據基督教福音書,耶穌是伯利恆的聖母瑪利亞受聖靈感孕後生下的,瑪利亞和丈夫約瑟當時正在去羅馬人口普查注冊的路上。耶穌的出生在信徒看來是猶太教預言中的彌賽亞將要到來計劃的實現,因為伯利恆是約瑟祖先大衛一族的家。

    聖誕節的英文是Christmas有時又縮寫為Xmas,這可能是因為X類似於希臘字母Χ(Chi),這個字母是"Christ"(基督)在希臘語(Χριστόςì[Christos])中的首字母。
