Christmas is a birthday celebration for the savior of the world, Jesus Christ. The celebration began when pagan Romans declared a week of lawlessness to be December 17-25. The Christians did not like the pagan festival so they decided to take the last day of the pagan celebration, December 25, and make it a time to remember the birth of Jesus.
