Originally, Christmas is celebrated to remember the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the Son of God.
Christmas, nowadays, is celebrated by people around the world, whether they are Christians or not. It's a time when family and friends come together and remember the good things they have. People, and especially children, also like Christmas as it's a time when you give and receive presents!
The economics of Christmas is significant because Christmas is typically a peak selling season for retailers in many nations around the world. Sales increase dramatically as people purchase gifts, decorations, and supplies to celebrate. In the U.S., the "Christmas shopping season" starts as early as October.
The Christmas shopping season encompasses:
- Black Friday, the informal name given to the Friday after Thanksgiving (which is always held on the fourth Thursday in November) that marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season (Friday, November 26th, 2021)
- Buy Nothing Day, an International Day of Protest against consumerism held on the same day as Black Friday (Friday, November 26th, 2021)
- Small Business Saturday, created as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday to encourage shoppers to visit small and local shops, held the day after Black Friday (Saturday, November 27th, 2021)
- Cyber Monday, a marketing term created by online retailers to encourage online shopping, held on the Monday after Black Friday (Monday, November 29th, 2021)
- Giving Tuesday, an international day of charitable giving, held the day after Cyber Monday (Tuesday, November 30th, 2021)
