The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus.   
The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries represent the blood he shed.

What time is Christmas Midnight Mass?     
Midnight Mass would be held at twelve midnight.     
Some churches hold their Midnight Mass at an earlier hour.

Christmas was celebrated on December 25, even in the early centuries,     
at least by the Western Church, when the date was soon adopted in the East also.

St. Francis of Assisi arrived at Greccio on Christmas Eve.   
Through the aid of his friend Giovanni Velita, he constricted a crib and grouped around it   
figures of the Blessed Virgin, St. Joseph, the ass, the ox, and the Shepherds.

The word Theophania is well known as a name for the Epiphany.     
The Epiphany was originally a celebration both of the Nativity and the Baptism of the Lord Jesus.
