Sikhs call Christmas time Christmas time. Why would they call it anything else? If you are wondering if Sikhs celebrate Christmas,some do for cultural reasons in western count…ries. I have relatives for instance who put up trees, send greeting cards to friends and family, give presents, have turkey dinners, etc. Do they believe that Jesus is their saviour? No. Do they believe Jesus was a prophet, someone in communium with God? Yes. Sikhs recognize Christianity as one of many different routes to God. I personally don't celebrate Christmas in any way. I do wish my Christian friends who celebrate it a wonderful Christmas, but that is about it. December and the days following it are a busy time for many Sikhs as a lot happened in Sikh history they like to commemorate. For instance, a battle was fought near the end of Dec. in which 40 Sikhs had to fight an army of a million. 2 of the Sikh prophet Gobind Singh's sons were killed in this battle too. They were 15 and 17. His two younger boys, 7 and 9, were captured along with his mother. His mother was imprisoned in a tower and died of exposure to the cold. The two children were killed as they wouldn't give up Sikhism. Formally remembering these events gives us strength. Gobind Singh's birthday was in mid-Dec. in 1666 as well.

Well first off, they are completely different things. One celebrates it on Dec. and the other in the 'new years' time. Christmas is a day of celebrating the birth of Jesus Ch…rist. Although no one know's for sure what day he was truly born, it symbolizes that he was born, and Christians celebrate this day. Chinese New year is just a celebration of a new year in Chinese form. I believe the time is different from our New Years because they go by the moon.
