    Christmas - the annual Christian festival celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, held on 25 December

    Xmas ~ informal term for Christmas

    Noel (聖誕節 〔常用於歌詞, 賀卡中) ~ means Christmas as a refrain in on carols and on Christmas cards

    Yule (舊)聖誕節 ~ archaic term for Christmas

    Note:

    Christmas simply means Christ's mass. (Cristes Maesse ~ old English) The Christian holiday celebrates Christ's birth, but there are no trustworthy records of the real date.

    In northern Europe, Christmas was originally a pagan feast celebrating the winter solstice, a time when ancient people built great bonfires to give the winter god strength and to receive him.

    The early church fathers wisely chose a day near the winter solstice as the date to celebrate Christ's birth, the return of light becoming associated with the hope of the world in the birth of a saviour.

    refrain (noun) = (詩歌或樂曲的)疊句;副歌

    solstice (noun) = 至﹐至日〔一年中最長或最短的一天〕

    saviour = 救世主
