The Old Farmer's Almanac daily calendar gives you quick reference to significant events on any day throughout the year. Christmas Day is a Christian holiday commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. Although the actual date of Christ's birth is unknown, it has been celebrated on December 25 since 4 century. Christmas is also extensively celebrated by non-Christians as a seasonal holiday, in which popular traditions such as gift-giving, feasting, and caroling take place. As Christianity began to spread in the 4th century, Christmas feast Day was set to December 25 by Pope Julius I; although no one knows for certain, some say that this was to align with the Roman pagan holiday die natalis solis invicti, birth of the invincible Sun. Today's rich mosaic of Christmas customs dates back through ages. Evergreen branches were used to symbolize life in ancient solstice festivals, as they stay green in winter. This tradition was absorbed by Christians, who interpreted evergreens as Paradise trees and began decorating them with apples. Candles and lights associated with Christmas, meant to symbolize guiding beacons for Christ children may have evolved from Yule log, which was light to entice the Sun to return as part of the jol festival in Pagan Scandinavia.
