Did You Know? Christmas Facts

In addition to shopping, Christmas time is full of tradition, so we thoguht we would share a few little known Christmas facts with you all.  So sit down and take a moment or two to remember these facts so that you can stun your friends and family with your knowledge of the weird and wonderful at Christmas.

  • The word Christmas is Old English, a contraction of Christ's Mass.
    Germany made the first artificial Christmas trees. They were made of goose feathers and dyed green.
  • Electric lights for trees were first used in 1895.
  • The first Christmas cards were vintage and invented in 1843, the Victorian Era.
  • Rudolph" was actually created by Montgomery Ward in the late 1930's for a holiday promotion. The rest is history.
  • The Nutcracker" is the most famous Christmas ballet.
  • Jingle Bells" was first written for Thanksgiving and then became one of the most popular Christmas songs.
  • If you received all of the gifts in the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas," you would receive 364 gifts.
  • Holly berries are poisonous.
    More diamonds are sold around Christmas than any other time of the year.
  • In Mexico, wearing red underwear on New Year's Eve is said to bring new love in the upcoming year.
 So there you go.  More information than you ever thought you'd need.
