Christmas

What Is Christmas?

More than 2,000 years ago, Jesus was born to fulfill a mission: to save us from sin and death by his death and resurrection. Christmas, which takes place on December 25 every year, is a time when we remember the birth of Jesus and reflect on God’s amazing generosity. It’s a time of joyful celebration and love. Catholics eagerly anticipate Christmas by spending the four weeks prior (a season called Advent) preparing for the coming of Jesus.

The History of Christmas

The story of Christmas is captured in the nativity scene displays you see during the Christmas season. More than 2,000 years ago, Jesus’ mother, Mary, and her husband, Joseph, traveled to Bethlehem and needed a place to stay for the night. There was no room for them at the inn, so they stayed in a stable nearby. Jesus was born there, and Mary placed him in a manger.

The Gospel tells us that angels shared the Good News of Jesus’ birth with shepherds who were watching their flocks that night. The shepherds hurried to the stable to see Jesus. Later, a group of wise men, or magi, were led by a star to Jesus. They offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

During the Christmas season we can all take some time to reflect on the birth of Jesus and the great love God showed us by sending his son to earth. We can follow the example of the magi and shepherds by welcoming Jesus into our lives.
