    Question How is Christmas localized around the world?

    Not every country has Christmas, some have other beliefs.

    But, I do believe that it its known around the world, mostly because of the Cola brand that painted Saint Nicholas as dressed in red.

    In Spanish is called Navidad, as in Nativity of Christ, I think.

    But I do wonder what's the "mas" of "Christmas"

    Please consider talking about it here!

    Hi! I've found something interesting about the origin of the word "Christmas" here: https://jakubmarian.com/etymology-of...tmas-and-xmas/

    "Mas" comes from Latin "missa".

    Well, "Mas" comes from..... "Mass," I think it's a lot simpler than you may think, lol

    En Brasil, Navidad se dice "Natal" y Santa o Papa Noel es "Papai Noel".
