It's the 7th January - Christmas Day.

I know that some of you may have shot your bolt early and celebrated Christmas Day on the 25th December last year, but the fact is the Christians of Northern Europe didn't adopt the 25th December to mark Jesus Christ's birthday until around three or four hundred years after he died (supposing he even existed at all) and this is generally accepted to have been the way they wrecked Yuletide which was, until then, widely celebrated.

To this day in Eastern Orthodox Christian countries, Christmas Day is today, 7th January.

Happy Christmas everybody!

I'm pretty sure that it's fact he existed.

Is happy Christmas a British thing? Just wondering, since over here its "Merry Christmas."

Yes. we say "Happy Christmas" just like we say "Happy Birthday" - I didn't realise until recently that there was anything weird about that.

Well, it's not weird necessarily, I've just never heard it before.

Still, I suppose "Happy Christmas and Merry New Year" sounds odd!
