The modern way to celebrate Christmas comes from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

Previous to that the festival known as Christmas was set at this time of year to overwrite the pagan festival that had been held since long before. In modern times it's a special day for many for various reasons, not all of them religious.

Nevertheless there is no mention of any religion in this festival so no day is any more important than another. Outside the game many people around the world will be having the day off and spending it with friends and family, religious leanings or not so any special event just on that day would exclude people.
