Christmas Day in Italy celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. This holiday is on the 25th of December every year.
Most people put up a Christmas tree, go to church, eat a fancy meal, and open presents. Others spend time quietly with their family and friends. Most buildings are closed other than railway stations and airports.
Christmas Day began on the 25th of December 1 BC when Jesus Christ was born. It became an official holiday in 350 AD.
