The Christmas tree brings the Christmas spirit to homes. These customs include the decoration of evergreen trees or, in India, mango or bamboo trees the celebration and the exchange of gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning.
It was a season of joy in the world in the middle of winter. Centuries before the arrival of a man named Jesus, the early Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter. During the winter solstice, when the worst of the winter was behind them, many people rejoiced and were able to look forward to longer days and longer hours of sunshine. In certain Western countries and other countries, the season of Christmas is also known as the holiday time or the festive season, which is usually known between November and the beginning of January.
