While as­so­ci­ated with turkeys, Santa Claus and Christ­mas trees in mod­ern times, Christ­mas tra­di­tion­ally cel­e­brates the birth of Je­sus Christ. ʻ Christ­mas ʼ is the short form of Christ's mass ( Cristes Maesse), which was first recorded in 1038. ʻ Mass ʼ refers to the Chris­tian tra­di­tion of eat­ing bread and wine in mem­ory of Je­sus. The day is of­ten cel­e­brated with spe­cial church ser­vices, feast­ing and the ex­change of gifts.
