    - Christian festival commemorating the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. Most popular of Christian observances. Christmas as a Feast of Nativity dates from the forth century. Although Jesus's birth date is not known, the Western church selected December 25th for the feast, possibly to counteract the non-Christian festivals of that approximate date.
