      Why is Christmas on 25 December?
The 12 Days of Christmas continue from 25 December to Twelfth Night on 5 January.
The season ends for many with Epiphany on 6 January, when Greek Orthodox Christians celebrate the baptism of Jesus when he was 30 years old, and Roman Catholics celebrated the coming of the wise men to see baby Jesus!
But Christmas Day itself does not come for Christians in Egypt and some other Eastern churches until 7 January.
Why do we celebrate the birth of Christ on 25 December? Festival of Light — Chickasha, Oklahoma

There is a special quiet beauty about snow on the trees.
These snow scenes were taken in Henrico County (Richmond), Virginia.
The Christmas Tree symbolizes the Eternal God who never changes.
