How Christmas Works

Friday, December 22nd, 2006 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

How Christmas Works

I love the introduction to this site. It asks you how you would explain Christmas to an alien. Then you get right to the listing of Christmas questions so that you can get to the bottom of “How Christmas Works.”

In the yellow box, next to the introduction, you can find related articles like: “How Do Christmas Trees Work”? or “How Does Mistletoe Work”? You will also find an Opinion section where you can read about other peoples’ Christmas traditions and you can even post your own.

If you scroll down past the introduction, you will find all the rest of the questions that might be asked about Christmas. Haven’t you ever wondered why we deck the halls with boughs of holly? Or learned why fruitcakes exist? Or why we are all dreaming of a white Christmas? (Which, by the way, I am dreaming of a white Christmas. Where is all the snow this year?!)

My favorite was the explanation behind why we celebrate Christmas Eve. It mostly has to do with religious reasons, but it was interesting to me, because it has always been such an automatic part of my celebrations that I never wondered why we celebrated it or where it may have started.

This is a fairly large guide to Christmas traditions and I hope that you get all your questions answered about this holiday that is widely celebrated around the world!
