December 26 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1449 words)
December 26 is the 360th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, 361st in leap years.
December 26 is a public holiday in most Christian countries, a notable exception being the United States (unless Christmas Day falls on a Sunday like it did in 2005 and will again in 2011, in which it is the observed federal holiday).

Why December 25? (482 words)
December 25 was observed as "the birthday of the sun." Because the sun god was identifed with Mithra, a very popular god at the time, pagan celebrations occurred throughout the empire (see Clement A. Miles, Christmas, New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1912, 23).
Though there no direct evidence that proves that the Church of Rome deliberately chose December 25 so that Christ's birth would replace "the birthday of the sun," we do have sermons from fathers of the church who soon after this used this line of reasoning.
December 25 was chosen not because it had somehow been proven from extra-biblical sources that Christ was definitely born on December 25.
