Why we do celebrate Christmas? Everyday is a Christams but why we spend money for xmas for gift giving? Why we emphasis that this is the time for children?

Well it's nice thing to do for one thing. It's not always about money, I know many people who don't buy expensive things and others who prefer to hand make things. It's just the time of year, it allows our families to be closer than what we would "while" "working" and for me christmas is one of the best times of years. Most people are generally friendlier. ~Joey

Celebrations are part of our day to day life. It could be for anything like festivals, happiness, birthdays, inaugurations, functions etc. So it is not only Christmas, it could be for any other occasions too. As you have told, everyday is a Christmas. It is not true for all, if you have enough money and time, it is okay. Otherwise it would come for once only so that everyone can manage to enjoy this.

We celebrate Christmas cause Christmas is the time Christ was born.
