World Christmas is a special time for people around the world celebrating the annual holiday. People spend time with family and loved ones, exchange gifts, and create lasting memories with one another.

Juliet Eilperin, The Washington Post Published 2:01 pm, Tuesday, June 26, 2018 ABOARD THE SHIP MORE SPACIOUS THAN THE HEAVENS - Off the Greek island of Spetses, the leader of 300 million Christians worldwide told a group of nearly 200 religious leaders, academics and activists that they needed to move beyond intellectualism when it came to the environment. "What remains for us is to preach what we practice," said Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, turning a traditional phrase on its head.
