Christmas day...

... is a Christian religious holiday, celebrated annually on December 25th.

Originally intended to celebrate the annual birth of the Sun God on the solstice of

winter (natalis invicti Solis), the festivity was re-signified by the Catholic Church in the

3rd century to stimulate the conversion of pagan peoples under the rule of the Empire

Roman then commemorated the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.
