It's no secret that there is a lot more to Christmas than giving and receiving gifts, decking the halls with Christmas decorations, and wearing festive Christmas sweaters. The holiday is an age-old celebration with centuries of tradition and deep symbolism behind just about every aspect of the holiday. Christmas Day is a public holiday in several countries and is celebrated religiously by most Christians but also by many non-Christians.
