Why is Christmas Day celebrated?
About 2000 years ago Lord Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem to Mary and Joseph. It is believed that his mother had become pregnant from divine wrath before marriage and Yusuf had a dream of getting married. Well, this is where Jesus was born. But they were threatened by King Herod. So Yusuf took them to Egypt. When King Herod died, Yusuf came to the village of Nathrej. When he was 12 years old, he lived among the preachers in the temples in Jerusalem for three years. At this young age, he answered all the questions. Which surprised everyone.
Then he returned to the village to join his father and learned carpentry from his father and started doing it. But his mind did not settle in it and went towards devotion. At the age of 30, he took a dip in the water with John. Then the Holy Spirit came upon Jesus. After fasting for 40 days, he started teaching people. Day by day his popularity started increasing. Due to which other religious leaders started getting jealous. Then he made a complaint to the Roman governor Pilate by making false accusations against him. Then the cruel governor crucified him.
It is believed that on the crucifix, Jesus Christ took the sins of all human beings on himself, so whoever believes in him will go to heaven. After 3 days of the death, a miracle happened that Jesus woke up again and after 40 days he went to heaven straight. Then 12 disciples of Jesus spread this religion, which is called Christianity.
