Why do we celebrate Christmas?
Here's the answer:
We celebrate Christmas because it’s the day we remember Jesus’ birth!
A long time ago, God sent His Son, Jesus, to Earth as a baby. His plan was for Jesus to save the whole world from sin: "God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son..." (John 3:16). When Jesus was an adult, He died on a cross and then rose again three days later. He did this to pay for the sins of the world, so that "...anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life" (John 3:16).
We don’t know exactly when Jesus was born, since the Bible doesn’t say, but many years ago people chose to remember His birthday on December 25. Everything we do on Christmas—giving gifts, decorating, singing carols—is meant to celebrate that Jesus came to earth as a baby. If you want to give Jesus a gift for His birthday, you can thank and praising Him for coming to Earth for us and tell others all about the meaning of Christmas too!
"The Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world..." (1 John 4:14).
"The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel. The name Immanuel means 'God with us'" (Matthew 1:23).
