Christmas or Christmas Day is a holiday observed generally on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. Although nominally a Christian holiday, Christmas is also widely celebrated by many non-Christians, and many of its popular celebratory customs have pre-Christian or secular themes and origins. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, music, an exchange of greeting cards, church celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations; including Christmas trees, lights, garlands, mistletoe, nativity scenes, and holly. In addition, several similar mythological figures, known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas and Santa Claus among other names, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season.
Sonic and his friends also takes part in Christmas, during 1999 SEGA released "Christmas in Station Square" patch for Sonic Adventure, Station Square will have 2 Christmas trees (one outside the train station, the other outside city hall), when touched the song Dreams Dreams A Capella from Christmas NiGHTS into Dreams would play. There is also unlockable costumes in Sonic Adventure 2 with unlockable Christmas (and Halloween) costumes as well as Sonic Channel with Christmas wallpaper and pictures of Sonic.
Santa Claus has appeared in a Christmas special of AoSTH and he also appeared in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. His British identidy Father Christmas has appeared in the Fleetway Sonic the Comic.
This article is a stub. Everyone tends to spend Christmas their own way, with friend or family or some event. Some are not at all bothered with it. Some also have certain adventures during Christmas themed on its winter festivities.
Various fan games may have Christmas themes and extra's during late December for Christmas.
Sometime Mystic and his mother go on Winter holidays to such places as Diamond Dust Zone on Flickies Island or to Holoska where it is believed Father Christmas lives. (Or Santa Claus, either names Mystic regards as the same identidy).
There will be content that can be accessible during December for two-player mode such as Christmassy costumes and also Central City and Blue Ridge will be especially Christmassy (with the Sega Saturn theme of Diamond Dust Zone as a special alternate to the Mega Drive version) as a playable 3D stage.
