No it doesn't. Christians celebrate Easter. The Islamic religion celebrates Moses (the prophet of Jews) and his holy book, The Torah, as well as the Gospels of Jesus (known as 'Isa' in Islam) , who brought the Gospels of the New Testament (although these gospels are viewed as slightly imperfect or a…s having lost their accuracy over time). Muslims believe that Jesus was a messenger of God and ascended into heaven prior to death by the will of God; and that a substitute may have been crucified in his place . Muslims also belive that Isa (Jesus) will be sent by God to judge the world at the end of time, just as most Chrisitans do. Muslims also believe in the Virgin Birth and honour Mary (Miriam) as the most perfect example of chaste womanhood in history. Actually, all prophets and holy books that came before Islam and the Qu'ran (which is viewed as the perfect unaltered word of God) are celebrated in the religion of Islam, provided they profess belief in one God; the God of Abraham and the "children of the book".

During this season we not only look forward to celebrating the birth of Christ, but also to examine our relationship with God by repenting of our wrongdoings and promising to obey His Word as instructed in the Bible to… the best of our ability.. It is also a time to prepare ourselves for the second coming of Christ, for we do not know at what time He will come for us. ( Full Answer )

Christmas celebrates the birth if Jesus Christ, Christianity is the religion based on his teachings.
Christmas was first started as a celebration that fell inline with the Pagan Roman festival of Saturnalia. It was adopted by many unbelievers as the birthday of Jesus, even though the scriptures point to his birthday being some time in the Fall, and was incorporated into Church teachings in an attem…pt to water down the Pagan history of the celebration. Interestingly, there is no record that Jesus observed or celebrated his own birthday. Since the word "Christian" is defined as "Christ-like" as in imitating Christ, or behaving in the same manner as he, a true Christian would never celebrate a holiday such as Christmas that would bring shame and dishonor to his name. Therefore, if a religion celebrates Christmas, they wouldn't be considered Christian. ( Full Answer )

well, i did a big project on that at school so if you have a project like me, stay tuned!

During the Holy Friday night, people crowd the streets with torches that light the streets up. they're prayers and singing going on that night. this is a sign that Easter is getting closer! One of the things children do on Palm Sunday, (one week before Easter) they help their parents make gifts like crosses out of palm and give them to friends and family. the next time palm Sunday comes around, people dispose of the old palm by burning it or berrying it, but never throwing it away. Finally after coloring eggs, (like Americans do) saying prayers, singing, and performing plays, Easter is finally here! Families gather together to go to church! they eat pasta, roasted lamb, rabbit, and wheat pie which contains dried citrus bits. Children recite poems for their parents and loved ones while everyone sits around the Easter table! The next day is Easter Monday, which people get the day off of. Easter Monday is called pasquetta-the little Easter. This usually celebrated with a family picnic. What they have have eat is boiled eggs, salami, and wine. They bring blankets with them to take naps after the picnic. Here is one of their traditions: Tredozio: On Easter Monday the Palio'Dell Uvuo is a competition when particepents fight to keep their eggs intact while breaking all the others! i hope this is organized and will seriously be enough for your project or what ever your doing! i noticed that is you pronounce the names of this stuff right, and have pictures to go along with it, youll get a better grade! dont forget to have fun with your project!
