  • Christmas is one of the most important dates on the Christian calendar, as it marks the day when Jesus came to earth and began the process of redeeming mankind.
    The story is told in the Bible, with a variety of characters from Mary and Joseph to an innkeeper, shepherds and angels.
    Each year congregations gather at Christmas to recognize the birth of Christ through songs, prayers, reading of the Christmas story and other special traditions.
    Services are typically held Christmas Eve with a candlelight service, with congregations also gathering Christmas Day in the morning to celebrate.
