Christmas is celebrated on December 25, and is one of the most important holidays of the year in the United States and for many other countries around the world. The manner in which the holiday is celebrated varies widely from country to country. In the United States, families typically decorate Christmas trees, display lights outside their home, set up nativity scenes, and exchange gifts. Many American children eagerly await the arrival of Santa Claus after they go to bed on Christmas eve, with promises that Santa will deliver gifts under their Christmas tree by morning. The Christmas season is filled with so many different ways to celebrate. Families share Christmas songs, do Christmas crafts, and bake Christmas goodies. Www.prekandksharing.blogspot.com.
