Full List Of Countries That Don’t Celebrate Christmas

The term, Christmas, is of recent origin. It translates as ‘mass on Christ’s day.’ However, different countries around the globe have various names for the festival. It is referred to as Yuletide in Germany, Navidad in Spanish, Natale in Italian, and Noël in French.

Although the Bible does not mention a specific date for his birth, Emperor Constantine, the first Christian Roman emperor, designated December 25 as ‘Christmas’ — a day to commemorate Christ’s birth.

Others, however, do not commemorate the day as a holiday or special occasion; in these nations, it is observed in the same manner as every other day of the week and has no special significance.

Muslims do believe in Jesus but do not believe he is God or the son of God.

According to the Islamic religion, Jesus’ birth was either in March or September based on the season indications in the Bible.

Another viewpoint of the Christmas holiday is that Christmas is really just a newly purposed pagan celebration that is not supported by the Islamic religion. The biggest Islam holiday is Ramadan, it’s more than just fasting.
