About Christmas 2015

The Feast of Nativity, popularly called Christmas, is one of the major Christian feasts and is ­celebrated with great solemnity every year on December 25th. This celebration marks an important event in the history of Christianity, the birth of Jesus Christ from the Virgin Mary, in a cave in Bethlehem of Judea. According to the New Testament Gospels, Jesus Christ was born in the city of Bethlehem, where Mary, mother of Jesus, accompanied by her fiancé Joseph, came from Nazareth for the census ordered by proconsul Quirinius, during the time of Emperor Octavian Augustus. Finding no room in the city, they were housed in a pastoral cave where the Holy Child was born.
