Why Do We Call It Christmas?

Have your children ever asked you, “Mom ,Why do we call it Christmas?” I know mine have. And for our family it is important to know the origins of this precious holiday because as Christians we observe it to honor the birth of our risen Savior, Jesus.

If you or anyone in your family has ever wondered the answer to this age-old question, then the Why Do We Call It Christmas DVD is for you! This a wonderful DVD is a part of the What’s In The Bible? series by VeggieTales® creator Phil Vischer.

In this DVD you will find answers to the following questions:

  • Is Christmas about Jesus or Santa Claus?
  • Was Jesus really born on December 25?
  • Are Jesus and Santa Claus the same person?
  • Was Christ born 4 days before Christ?
  • Who is Santa Claus and why do we call him that?
  • Why do we cut down trees and put them inside our homes for Christmas?
  • What is the difference between Christmas and Hanukkah?
  • What is the true meaning of Christmas? And why?

  1. Sounds interesting. I would like to learn the answers to all of the questions you listed from a biblical stand point. I would also like for my kids to know the answers to these questions.

  2. We would love to share this with our children. My 6 year old loves to know the “why” behind everything.

  3. With 5 little ones this dvd sounds like a great way of answering their questions about why we as a family focus on Jesus and not santa.

  4. I’d love to watch this with my kiddos, they’ve really enjoyed the What’s in the Bible series! It would be really interesting to learn the history behind some traditions.

  5. We have 2 new kiddos living with us this year. Our boys are older and we don’t have much for the littles. I have been looking for something to help them understand our faith. They have not had much exposure to Christ. Christmas is a good time to really show them who Jesus is. Thanks for the giveaway…it looks like lots of fun!

  6. I have 2 six year olds that have a question for everything. We have tried teaching about the reality of Jesus’ birth but it is a little too much for them. We are looking for help to give them better (age appropriate) answers. We would also like to see other perspectives about celebrating Santa yet making the birth of Jesus priority.

  7. Our family has made some drastic changes in our family traditions the past two years. As a Christian and as a mom I have researched these questions as deep as I can. Watching the movie, The Star of Bethlehem, was tremendously insightful for my husband and I. But, I have not had any material that I feel directly addresses these issues for children. With so many influences and distractions this time of year, our primary goal is to keep the focus on Jesus. I think this movie may present answers in a way that would eliminate some confusion for our children.

  8. What a fun way to learn about our Christmas traditions! I know my youngest son would enjoy learning more about the importance of Christmas.

  9. This would be great! Not only would my 7 year old daughter love this, but I would love to know those answers myself! Plus, we love the fun characters from What’s in the Bible!

  10. I have two granddaughters ages 3 and 1.5 who do not live near me. I am on disability and have no extra money for gifts, or to visit. I try very hard to send them a little gift, but always feel that it is never enough as their parents make quite a lot and buy expensive things. I don’t feel that this is the true spirit of Christmas, nor do I think that those girls even know about the true meaning of Christmas and feel this would be an amazing gift and heartfelt way to share something very special with my granddaughters and their parents as well. Thank you.

  11. Why do we call it Christmas? If someone asked me this question I could maybe come up with an answer but sure if it would be correct. This DVD would be perfect!

  12. I would love to watch this with my family! I’d love to know the answers to ALL the questions you posted!!!!
