Christmas Day

Christmas Day is on the 25th December.

This is not just a bank holiday over in the UK but through out the world Christmas Day is a bank holiday.

Christmas day represents the day that Jesus was born and this is the reason we have Christmas. However Christmas has become very commercialised now and many people only see it as a day for giving and receiving presents.

If Christmas Day falls on a weekend day (Saturday or Sunday) then the bank holiday will be carried forward to the Monday.

The countdown to Christmas Day is advent. Many people get an advent Calender or advent Candle that counts down the days to Christmas.

Christmas Day is followed by Boxing day which is another bank holiday.
