some Christians go to church on Christmas eve because it's the day thought to be when Jesus was born (not sure about other religions) but what most people these days do is buy a tree (real or fake, your choice) and put presents under it for loved ones so they can open them on Christmas day

why buy a tree?
why put presents under it ?
why do not give each other directly ?
Report as
i dont know the history behind the tree but there is a fictional character called santa claus who (in stories) brings children gifts while they are sleeping and puts them underneath the tree. santa claus was also known as saint Nicholas. the tree is fun to decorate and little kids have fun believing in Santa Claus but eventually are told hes not real or they figure it out themselves. you can give gifts directly or they an open them by picking them from under the tree. either one is fine, of course there isnt really any rules, you can do anything you want. :)

Report as

Its just a tradition for Christmas it sorta symbolizes it it started a really long time ago we put presents under it i think because it is believed that it was Jesus's birthday and alot of people put a little stable under the tree too with mary, joseph,baby jesus , and animals and stuff

Well Christmas to some people is celebrating Jesus' birthday and other it's getting gifts and others its both. Christmas to me is mostly about spending time with my family and having fun, not party fun but family fun. We give gifts and are happy. Years ago my family would buy a cake for Jesus, not quite sure why that stopped but we still love him. :) Christmas is about being nice to each other mostly. :)

sounds cool !
What kind of gift should give ?
Report as
any gift really, i give gifts that my mother or sister will like. for example, my sister collects giraffes, so if i see a giraffe that she doesnt have already ill buy it for her and wrap it. you dont need to buy a gift though, you can make one of course. or you dont have to give a gift at all. for me, Christmas is about spending time with my family :)

Wrap presents up for who you want to give the presents to and give it to them. :) Spend it from the time you wake up until you go to sleep with your wonderful family :D! Eat amazing food <3 and look at the christmas tree,lights and watch movies! & Do whatever else you would like to do.
