Since the dawn of time, Homo sapiens has celebrated the Winter and Summer Solstices.

The first writings.

From the first century BC, the cult of Mithras, of Persian origin, imported to Rome by the Roman legionaries was celebrated in Rome. Mithras was the Persian deity of light. There was a celebration on December 25, the winter solstice, the birth of Mithras the undefeated sun. It was celebrated with the sacrifice of a young bull. In 274, Emperor Aurelian declared the cult of Mithras the state religion and fixed the celebration of the solstice on December 25.

Origin of the liturgy of December 25

The holiday of Christmas did not exist at the beginning of Christianity. It was only from the second century that the Church sought to determine in the year the day of the birth of Jesus about which the Gospels say nothing. Different dates have been proposed: January 6, March 25, April 10 …

Around 330 or 354, Emperor Constantine decided to set the date for Christmas at December 25. In 354, Pope Liberius established the feast of December 25, which marks the start of the liturgical year. This date of December 25 has a symbolic value. Indeed, taking inspiration from Malachi 3/19 and Luke 1/78, the coming of Christ was considered to be the rising of the “Sun of righteousness”. The feast of Christmas, feast of December 25, thus celebrates the birth of Jesus, the sun of justice.

The feast of December 25 arrived gradually in the East and in Gaulle: in 379 in Constantinople, at the beginning of the 5th century in Gaulle, during the 5th century in Jerusalem and at the end of the 5th century in Egypt. In the Eastern Churches, in the fourth century, the manifestation of God was celebrated in various forms on January 6.

Christmas story until the end of the Middle Ages

Emperor Theodosius in 425 officially codifies the ceremonies of the Christmas feast. The feast of December 25 has become exclusively Christian. Clovis was baptized on the night of December 25, 496. In 506, the Council of Agde made him a day of obligation. In 529, Emperor Justinian made the holiday of December 25 a non-working day. The midnight mass is celebrated from the 5th century, with the pontificate of Gregory the great. In the 7th century, it became customary in Rome to celebrate 3 masses: the vigil on the evening of December 24, the dawn mass and the daily mass on December 25.

The holiday season spread gradually in Europe. It was celebrated at the end of the 5th century in Ireland, in the 7th century in England, in the 8th century in Germany, in the 9th century in the Scandinavian countries, in the 9th century and 10th century in the Slavic countries. From the 12th century, the religious celebration of the feast of Christmas is accompanied by liturgical dramas, the “mysteries” which stage the adoration of the shepherds or the procession of the Magi. These liturgical dramas were first played in churches, then in courts.

Christmas story since the Renaissance

Church nativity scenes appear in Italy in the 15th century and the Christmas tree in Germany in the 16th century. Then the family nurseries, Neapolitan then Provençal, develop from the 17th century. At the time of the Reformation in 1560, Protestants opposed the crib and preferred the tradition of the tree. With the counter-reform in the 17th century, the representations of liturgical dramas were prohibited by the Church because they had become too profane.

In the 19th century, Santa Claus appeared in the United States. It spread to Europe after World War II. From the 19th century, charities offered the most disadvantaged the traditional meal. Currently, this day tends to become primarily a day of the child and the family.

Today the feast of Christmas is no longer a religious feast for many, but a family feast where children are particularly celebrated regardless of their religion.

And we even forget that its origin comes without question from the celebration of the Winter Solstice where the night is the longest of the year
