Christmas is one of the biggest holidays of the year. It's big in terms of how many people celebrate it. It's also big in terms of how it affects people and society as a whole.

Christmas comes at the end of the calendar year. For many people, this time of year is snowy and cold. It's also the end of another year of working hard and taking care of family and friends.

Whether you celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday, remembering the birth of the baby Jesus, or as the time when Santa comes to your house, you know that Christmas is a BUSY time of year.

And even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you know how busy other people can be. (Celebrate Hanukkah instead? Click here.)

Christmas has come to mean different things to different people. For some people, Christmas is a season in which people wish other people "Peace on Earth" and "Goodwill Toward Men and Women." Other people see the Christmas season as one of pretty lights and decorated trees. Many kids see the holiday as a time of getting and receiving gifts.
