The day or evening before Christmas. It’s a special day for many. Most religions believe Christ was born at midnight hence the ringing of bells and overnight prayers. Although it commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ and celebrated around the world, It’s believed to be inherited from the Jewish tradition based on the story of creation in the Book of Genesis on night and day, the first day.

Christmas eve is a day and evening of Christmas carols, gathering of family and friends for prayers, gift wrappings, giving. It is celebrated differently around the world, varying by country and region. May you have a Blessed Christmas Eve.
