With the observation of the Nativity as the seasons highlight, it is also combined with so many cultural customs, primarily influenced by the winter festivals in earlier times. When in the previous years, Christmas is only observed by Christian as a holiday, today, it is now considered a cultural holiday by the non-Christians all over the world. With the worldwide celebration of the season, it has been proven that there is an equivalent increase in the economy of the different countries.
