Spotlight on Christmas around the world

    Christmas has become a holiday celebrated throughout the world. Although it began as a religious holiday, a commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and an important day for all Christians, it has evolved into a more secular celebration where gift-giving and family-centered activities dominate. Because of this evolution, travelers can find evidence of these practices from one end of the earth to another. Some of the symbols have also become universal — the Christmas tree, Santa Claus, colorful lighting displays.
    Check out my photo gallery, also posted today, to see evidence of this holiday taking place throughout the world.
