CHRISTMAS



Christmas, the most joyous of American holidays, is celebrated on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. Almost all workers have Christmas day off, and students have a two to three week vacation for Christmas and New Year.
Early Puritan settlers, who came to America disliked the Christmas holiday and didnít celebrate it. Celebrating Christmas became popular in the nineteenth century, after many German and Irish immigrants had come to America.
People send Christmas cards to their families, relatives and friends. They may put the cards that they have received on the wall, the mantle, or hang them on a string as Christmas cards are very colourful and beautiful.
Many people do Christmas shopping in December. They look for nice gifts for their family, relatives and friends. It is said that stores make one quarter of all their sales during the Christmas season.
Most shopping centers have huge crowds before Christmas. There is often a nice Christmas tree, and usually a man dressed in a Santa Claus suit; small children tell him what they want for Christmas.
