  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

  • My favorite Christmas story
    Walking downtown as a child to the Santa house... There was a path lined with tall metal candy canes that lead you to a small birdhouse shaped Xmas house... I remember the wall paper and the old element heater... We got a big candy cane as we left... And we would drive around looking at lights... I was always memorized by the street decorations... We had the red lanterns, the scintillos and candy corns in a wreath... Turns out thy were bells... Lol. This fully explains my obsession now...

  2. Is there a way to save the photos and create a photo “gallery”? Then archive the text.... I agree with the idea of making this a “how to” forum. Also, need to make it easier to navigate. when I log in... I should see a few buttons at the top. 1) forums 2) Classifiess 3) how to its not very intuitive....
