    I think must china can understand this sentence.
    我想大多数的中国人都能了解这个句子的意思.

    And maybe you can add some words to make it better~
    或许你可以再增加些字句让它看起来更好.

    "My brother came back from Canada during Christmas."
    我 哥哥/弟弟 在圣诞节的期间从加拿大回来!

    哥哥/弟弟= older brother / younger brother
    期间 = during

    (Reference: if used "在圣诞节", it will mean 12/25,just a day.because "在" in your sentence is mean "on".)

    Hope it can help you! and Nice to meet you! : )

    我想说的是:“我的兄弟是在圣诞节期间从加拿大回来的”

    old brother or younger brother?
    old brother ===>哥哥
    younger brother===>弟弟

    so it would be :圣诞节的时候,我哥哥从加拿大回来的。

    describe one thing, usually from TIME then WHO,,,,,,,

    在圣诞节期间,我哥哥从加拿大回来。during:在······期间,在······时候
