CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS

 

The first recorded use of 'Merry Christmas' was in a Christmas letter sent in 1534. 

A 19th-century American Christmas card.

A fun ritual of Christmas is exchanging Christmas cards with family and friends. Having your child decorate your cards with embellishments of his choice is a good idea. Sending Christmas cards can allow someone to let their loved ones know they are thinking of them and wish them well.

Why Do We Celebrate Christ Birth on December 25?

         Christmas is an annual Christian holiday that celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, and they chose December 25th day to mark His birthday by the Roman Catholic Church years after His death. And Christians celebrate this Christian holiday all over the world. 

O, Tannenbaum 

The origin or the use of Christmas trees goes way back to ancient Egyptians and Romans, and they used evergreen trees like fir or pine trees, wreaths, and garlands. And the use of modern Christmas trees started in Germany in the 16th century. Instead of the glitzy decorations that we see today, they decorated the trees with fruits and nuts. We bet you didn’t know this interesting fact about the Christmas tree!

Before turkey became the obvious choice of food for the holidays, the traditional Christmas meal in England was a pig’s head covered with mustard.

With the Sanspec Collection of "Christmas All Around the World" cards, let's spread peace, joy, and love to those whose spirits need lifting. Don't delay shop now.
