Christmas (commonly observed on Friday, December 25) is a winter holiday celebrated by billions of people around the world. It likely originated from a longstanding history of winter celebrations and evolved over two millennia incorporating many pre-Christian, pagan traditions into the festivities along the way. Today Christmas is celebrated by spending time with loved ones, exchanging gifts, feasts, and festivities. For Christians it is also a celebration of the brith of Jesus Christ.
