Christmas Date 2020 the 25th of December is on a Friday

Christmas 2013 - Wednesday

Unlike Ash Wednesday, Thanksgiving Thursday or even Shrove Tuesday, Christmas Day can fall on any day of the week.

  • Christmas Day 2010 was on a Saturday
  • Christmas Day 2011 was on a Sunday
  • Christmas Day 2012 was on a Tuesday
  • Christmas Day 2013 was on a Wednesday
  • Christmas Day 2014 was be on a Thursday
  • Christmas Day 2015 will be on a Friday
  • Christmas Day 2020 will be on a Friday

The last time that Christmas Day fell on a Friday was 2009.

As you probably know, Boxing Day always follows Christmas Day; what's more, New Year's Day
is always the same day of the week as Christmas Day, only one week later.

Which Day of the Week is Best for Christmas Day?

  • Monday - Has a certain logic, start the week with Christmas!
  • Tuesday -  Start the week with Christmas Eve.
  • Wednesday - OK.
  • Thursday - Middling time of the week, Boxing Day on a Friday is good.
  • Friday - End of the week, Boxing Day falls on a Saturday.
  • Saturday - Not my favourite day, does not seem quite right.
  • Sunday - A natural, religious feel to Christmas on a Sunday.

Christmas Day

Christmas Day: Jesus' official birth day is 25th December. Church leaders decided this date in the 4th Century. Historians and theologians now believe that Jesus was born at some time between 4 and 6 BC or Before the common era, BCE as it is now called.

Dear Santa

If you leave a new bike under the tree, I will give you the antidote to the poison I put in the milk.

Timmy.

Service?

It was a cold and misty Christmas morning in the very depth of winter after a heavy fall of snow and only Farmer Evans and the Reverend Joseph Lancaster managed to arrive at the church for the morning service.

'Well,' said the Vicar laconically, 'I guess there's no point in having a service today.'

'Well that's not how I see it.' said Farmer Evans smartly. 'If only one cow turns up at feeding time, I still feed it.'
