Father Christmas Race by Marie Claude Fontaine.


Firstly, Christmas is a festival of Roman origin celebrated every year, mainly on the night of December 24 to 25 as well as the 25th all day. As a Christian holiday, it commemorates the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.

Today, Christmas has become strongly secularized and is no longer necessarily celebrated as a religious holiday. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many countries, which allows family reunion around a festive meal and the exchange of gifts. The second day of Christmas (December 26) is also a public holiday in several northern European countries. This also allows participation in Christmas masses for those who celebrate the holiday in its religious form. After Easter, Christmas is indeed the second most important feast of the Christian liturgical calendar.

The period around Christmas is called “holiday season” in French-speaking Canada and “holidays” (or simply “les fêtes”) in Europe when New Year’s celebrations are included15. Since the middle of the 20th century, this period has lost its Christian aspect while keeping alive the tradition of the feast. In this spirit, Christmas takes on a folkloric connotation, retaining the regrouping of family units around a meal and the exchange of gifts around the traditional Christmas tree. Outside homes, it gives rise to the illumination of streets, houses and shops and the organization of Christmas markets. It is also an important period commercially.
