Christmas in the usa
You probably know that Xmas is one of the brightest national day in the country. People try to attend special church services to remember the birth of Jesus Christ again.
But Xmas is not only a religious day, it became one of the first federal holidays. On this day most offices, companies and businesses remain closed and the greatest number of workers and government employees, have the day off. Many places, shops and offices even close early on the day before.
Naturally Christians observe Xmas according to their church traditions. Besides the strictly religious traditions, however, other common Christmas practices are observed by people who are not so religious or who are not Christian at all. In this way, some Xmas traditions have become American traditions.
The most popular way to celebrate Xmas is to cook a big turkey with apples and have a glass of wine with the family.
