Christmas Eve Candlelight Services
Christmas is the day on which Christians around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Although the actual day of the year of the birth is not known, most Christians in the Western world celebrate the birth on December 25. The word Christmas comes from the early English phrase Christes Masse, which means Christ’s Mass. The day is also commemorated as the Feast of the Nativity.
In 2018, Christmas will be on Tuesday.
