关于圣诞节的一些背景资料

发布:star    时间:     浏览:13086次

the word christmas comes from the words cristes maesse, o "christ's mass." christmas is the celebration of the birth of jesus for members of the christian religion. most historians peg the first celebration of christmas to rome in 336 a.d.

christmas is both a holiday and a holy day. in america it is one of the biggest event of the year (especially for kids), and for members of the christian religions it is an important day on the religious calendar.


during the christmas season in america, many people take their children to a mall where they can "meet santa."

the federal government, all state governments, all schools/colleges/universities and the vast majority of businesses in america give employees one o two days off at christmas, making it an important holiday (other federal holidays are: new year's day, martin luther king day, washington's birthday, memorial day, independence day, labor day, columbus day, veterans day, thanksgiving). in the roman catholic calendar, christmas is one of six holy feast days celebrated in america, the others being: circumcision (new year's day), ascension, assumption (mary's assumption into heaven, august 15), all saints (november 1), and the immaculate conception (december 8).
