The month of December
December sounds much like decade because in the Roman calendar it was the tenth month of a year that started in March and simply ended in December. For hundreds of years, the days following were not counted until the spring equinox marked March. That made it kind of hard to organize anything in the meantime until in 700 BCE January and February were inserted into the Roman Calendar.
The winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is in December, which is the day with the least daylight hours. Conversely, in the Southern Hemisphere, the same day is the summer solstice, that is the day with the most daylight hours.
The commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ is usually observed on December 25, both as a religious and cultural celebration. Even if the actual date of Jesus’ birth is unknown, the church in the early fourth century decided to fix the date as December 25. This conveniently corresponded to the date of the winter solstice on the original Roman calendar then in use around the Mediterranean.
Boxing Day as the day following Christmas originated in the United Kingdom and was taken up by most countries formerly in the British Empire. In many European countries, the same day is celebrated as the second Christmas Day.
There are different stories explaining the name Boxing Day, which relate the name to varying customs of giving boxes with money or gifts around Christmas times to poor people, tradesmen or servants.
