Giving on Christmas
On that joyous day, gifts that are left on Christmas eve, December 24th, by “Santa” under the Christmas trees decorated with lights and ornaments, are exchanged among family and friends.
Day’s of Christmas time also remind us of those unfortunate who are barley surviving on tiny amounts of food and are often going to bed hungry. To those in need many give generously as much as they can since, just as throughout the year, on Christmas day not everyone in the world is fortunate as we are.

Santa Claus is also known as Saint Nicholas and Father Christmas.
Story tells us that Santa lives on North pole (map) and brings us gifts on Christmas Eve, December 24th, or on Saint Nicholas day, December 6th.
Santa is white-bearded man wearing a red coat and lucky ones can see him on Christmas eve, high up in the night-sky in his sled pulled by flying reindeer delivering gifts to the children.
Christmas in a modern day society
Christmas is the day that apparently drives the economy. It’s the biggest business day of the year for many stores. It’s the day that became one of “Happy holidays” in a modern day society.
