Professional career

Christmas was selected by the Philadelphia Wings in the fifth round (49th overall) of the 2005 Entry Draft. In his first season he played sparingly, only appearing in two games. Beginning with the 2007 season, Christmas saw his playing time increase by being on the field during defensive situations in order to take advantage of his speed in the transition game. In Week 3 of the 2008 NLL season, Christmas was awarded "Transition Player of the Week" honors[1]

Christmas was selected by the Boston Cannons in the first round of the 2005 Collegiate Draft. He won the MLL Most Improved Player honors in his second season in the league, and appeared in the 2006 MLL All-Star Game.

Christmas was named to Team USA in the 2007 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships. [2]

The Wings announced that John Christmas will not play the 2009 season. He will take the year to focus on establishing a non-profit organization in Philadelphia called L.E.A.P.S. (Lacrosse, Education, Attitude, Perseverance, Success). [3]
