A piece of history about Christmas
Christmas originated following the birth of Christ. Contrary to what many people think, the Christmas celebration as we know it, does not occur in the Bible. In fact, the first Christians who lived in the first three centuries after Christ, did not even celebrate Jesus' birth as Christmas. Easter, the remembrance of the resurrection of Jesus, has been celebrated the particular celebration that has indeed dated back to the early AD years.
Only in the third century AD did Christmas as we know it begin to take shape. Among historians, there is some disagreement as to whether the first celebration took place in 336 or 354 AD, but it is agreed that this happened in Rome on December 25. The explanations for this date vary from the assumption that the world was created on March 21, the sun on the fourth day, and that Christ came into being as the Sun of Justice nine months later, to the explanation that Christmas is the result of a Christianization of a Roman holiday on that date in honor of the sun god Saturn.
From the Middle Ages, Christmas in Europe became mixed with all kinds of pagan customs, including the display of the Bethlehem stable and the laying of a wooden figure of the baby Jesus in a manger. The Christmas tree was also introduced around the nineteenth centruy. This mixture caused tensions within certain societies and Christian movements, certainly during the Protestant Reformation in Europe in the sixteenth century.
Throughout the decades, the Protestant church became a little more tolerant towards the Christmas celebration. By the beginning of the eighteenth century, the Christmas celebration had become common, with two days and a total of five church services. Eventually, proponents of the Christmas party prevailed, both within the church and in society, especially since maintaining the Christmas tradition was seen as a good practice. From the twentieth century, the party also began to gain an increasingly commercial image, with the mischievous Santa on the huge Coca Cola trucks as one of the most striking illustrations of it. Internationally, Christmas is mainly an opportunity to be with family and friends, to eat and drink, and to go on holiday, although it still has a mainly Christian celebration in various places.
