Christmas is a traditional Western holiday. On December 25th, people gather together for a festive meal. The most common saying about the origin of Christmas is to commemorate the birth of Jesus. It is said that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. When Mary was about to give birth, the Roman government issued an order that all people must go to Bethlehem to declare their household registration. Mary and fiancé Joseph had to go to Bethlehem as ordered. When they arrived in Bethlehem, they could not find a hotel accommodation, only a stable can stay temporarily. At this moment, Jesus was about to be born. So Mary gave birth to Jesus on the manger. In order to commemorate the birth of Jesus, later generations set December 25 as Christmas.
