A piece of history about Christmas

 

Christmas is originally the celebration of the birth of Christ. Contrary to what many people think, the feast and celebration does not occur in the Bible. In fact, the first Christians, who lived in the first three centuries after Christ, did not even know of such a celebration. On the other hand Easter, the memory of the resurrection of Jesus, has been celebrated since the first years of our era.

 

It wasn't until the third century that Christmas as we know it begin to take shape. There is some disagreement among historians 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 century. This mixture caused tensions within certain societies and Christian movements, certainly during the Protestant Reformation in Europe in the sixteenth century.

 

One of the places where Christmas was met with a lot of resistance was in the Protestant Netherlands. In 1574, the Protestant church even wanted to completely abolish the entire celebration, but that proved easier said than done. The ruling government did not agree with the church's reasoning that Christmas was primarily a pagan festival of superstition. In places where Christmas was forbidden, people saw large numbers of people seeking other non-Christian entertainment or even starting to feel attracted to the Roman Catholic faith.

 

This made the Protestant church a little more tolerant towards the Christmas celebration, but resistance remained within the church. By the beginning of the eighteenth century, the Christmas celebration had become more or less common, with two days and a total of five church services. Eventually the proponents of the Christmas party prevailed, both within the church and in society, especially because maintaining the Christmas tradition was seen as a good practice. From the twentieth century onwards, the party also began to acquire an increasingly commercial image, with the mischievous Santa on the enormous Coca Cola trucks as one of the most striking illustrations of it. Around the world, Christmas is primarily an opportunity to be with family and friends, to eat and drink, and to go on holiday, although it still has a proud Christian belief in various places.
