Mensagem:  The most popular way to use at Christmas is to mean the Christmas season....Advent is the religious period before Christmas...it's the time when people prepare, shop, cook, bake, clean, decorate, visit, travel and do all of the things that make up the Christmas season. On Christmas usually means the actual day of Christmas. On Christmas Eve we go to midnight mass and then go home and go to bed. On Christmas morning when we wake up the presents are under the tree. On Christmas we celebrate family values and have a quiet time with our closest relatives. At Easter we expect the last storms of the winter season. On Easter we go to a sunrise religious service. (Easter season: at; Easter day: on. But, that's the way I talk and write. There might be a grammar rule that I don't know about so I can't quote it to you.
