The History of Christmas

I’m sure you’ve noticed by now that I love Christmas! It is yet another excellent reason for our family to get together, eat yummy food and celebrate. There is a lot of great information on this Web site, so let’s get out our shovels and start digging in!

The Real Story of Christmas – Here you will learn the history of Christmas, including how the church decided on December 25th and why. Discover the ancient feasts of Europe, Saturnalia, when Christmas was outlawed, when Christmas became popular in America and how the Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol influenced the holiday.

Watch Christmas Videos – Here you will find 10 different videos devoted to Christmas. See Babe Ruth as Santa, learn about fruit cakes and so much more!

World Traditions – I love learning different traditions behind holidays, so I couldn’t wait to dive into this section. Here you will learn all sorts of different traditions from around the globe.

Evolution of Santa – Here you will learn all about Santa from his start as St. Nicholas to the Santa we see at the mall and you’ll even learn about good ol’ Rudolph!

Christmas Trees – Here you will learn the significance of the Christmas tree and how long it has played a part in our winter celebrations, reminding us that Spring will come with its evergreen branches. You’ll also travel around the world, checking out trees and you can even try some tree trivia.

Christmas Truce of 1914 – In this section, you’ll learn about the Christmas Truce of 1914, where shots were no longer fired in favor of goodwill and celebration in the trenches of the holiday.

Fast Facts – In this section, you’ll find a selection of quick facts about Christmas. For example, “From 1659 to 1681, the celebration of Christmas was outlawed in Boston and law-breakers were fined five shillings.”

Christmas Recipes – Can you possibly want any more recipes?! Well, I actually do. I collect them to try them out each year. Here you’ll find recipes for cookies, candies and beverages.

Holiday How-Tos – Here you will find great holiday how-tos. For example, how to wrap presents, how to make a wreath, how to tie a bow and more!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
