Merry Christmas

The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25 was in 336 A.D. during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine (he was the first Christian Roman Emperor). A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on the 25th of December.

There are many different traditions and theories as to why Christmas is celebrated on December 25th.

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family!!! I hope it is a joyous day for you!
