Christmas is a Christian holiday in memory Jesus Christ's birth and most people celebrate the day on December 25. There are many ways to celebrate Christmas and people in different countries blend their cultural traditions with more universal Christmas celebrations. it is common for many households to have decorated Christmas trees, either real or fake. Christmas Day is a special day for children who receive gifts that they have been longing for.  Many children believe in Santa Claus, or Father Christmas, a figure who is believed to provide Christmas presents to children. Many churches have special Christmas Day services, some of which include choirs, joyous singing, and meet-and-greet opportunities after the church services. Many churches are beautifully decorated.

Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock,
Jingle bell swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock,
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time
The rock the night away

Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock

Mix and a mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell rock 

Santa Claus....

Christmas tree with gift..
