Christmas is celebrated on December 25th of every year, why this date?
Christmas is celebrated on December 25th of every year.
Why was December 25th chosen as the day to celebrate Christmas? There are many theories and historians differ on the answer why December 25th is Christmas. The important thing to remember is that it is a celebration of the Birth of Jesus Christ, not the controversy of what the actual date is.
Many countries and ethnic cultures celebrate Christmas Eve by going to Midnight Mass. Around Europe Christmas Eve is also a time to exchange presents. There are a lot of traditions around the world one thing is certain, that the Midnight Mass at the Vatican Celebrated by the Pope is the most important and most memorable Mass.
Having been born in Hungary, and then relocated to Austria, I grew up with Christmas Eve being the most important evening with exchanging of love, affection, presents and going to Midnight Mass or at least watching it on TV.
Every Christian dreams of one day going to the Vatican to experience the Pope Celebrating Midnight Mass. This year the pope went above the normal tradition and he even brought in nine trumpet players to add to the quality of the music. Whether you are Catholic or not make a resolution to watch Midnight Mass on TV real soon, you will not be disappointed and might get a better understanding of a Sacred Catholic Tradition.
I have enclosed a great many pictures of the Midnight Mass of 2012. Now with that said I hope you will enjoy them. At the same time I would like to wish you and your family, peace, love and a very Merry Christmas!
