Χριστούγεννα, γενέθλια, ελληνικά - Only plural forms?

  Whenever I read Greek books, I come across these words that seem to only be spoken as plural.

τα χριστούγεννα Christmas
τα γενέθλια Birthday
τα γεράματα Old age
τα ελληνικά Greek
τα γυαλιά Glasses

Do you know why this is the case and can you think of any more ONLY plural words?

Thank you in advance, this site is really priceless and timeless for us struggling Greek learners.
