Did You Know?
The birth of Jesus was not celebrated for the first 300 years of Christianity's existence, at all! The first mention of December 25th being a holiday on account of Christ's birth, was in 336 CE, in an early Roman calendar.
Christmas is a wonderful time to remember how our Lord Jesus came into this world, as a human, to save all of mankind from sin. It's the time to celebrate the eternal life we share with Christ. The warmth of Christmas season, and festivities involved with it, certainly leave us excited and elated. Moreover, we invite our family and friends over to share in the joy. Fun dinners, parties, carol singing, etc., are all a part of the celebration. To enhance the mood at such get-togethers, hosts often organize party games which involve trivia and quizzes. This increases the energy levels at the party and keeps everybody involved.
In the following section, we give you some questions that will help you organize a Christmas quiz, which is one of the easiest activities to plan. Most of the questions are not too difficult, as this is intended to be a fun activity which involves all generations feasting together under the decorative lights of Christmas. However, these questions will definitely help you understand more than what you already know about this day.
