4Kidz: Why do we call it Christmas (Part 2)

We celebrate Christmas on December 25, and Christmas is the
celebration of Jesus’ birth – but we don’t know if Jesus was born
on December 25.Way back then, no one was keeping a record of
birthdays like we do now. In the early church days (in 336 AD), a
church leader decided to make December 25 the day for the Christ’s
Mass (Christmas). Even though we don’t know the exact day Jesus was
born, the second chapter of Luke tells us lots of other things
about Jesus’ birth. But more important than how Jesus was born is
why Jesus was born – to bring his people back into relationship
with God and remove the sins that keep them apart. Let’s pray and
thank God for sending His Son to save us.
