Christmas Adam is the last chance to prepare for the Christmas Eve party. The day before Christmas Eve. Since Adam was created before Eve, and the need to be equitable in the holiday season, Christmas Adam creates further anticipation of Christmas Day. All "Eve" holidays are better than the actual holiday because the day does not have to live up to the expectation of the real holiday.
Christmas Eve refers to the evening or entire day preceding Christmas Day, a widely celebrated festival commemorating the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. Christmas has many, many names. Do you know some of them—aside from, of course, Christmas? How about Sheng Tan Kuai Loh (China), or Hauskaa Joulua (Finland), or Joyeux Noel (France)? In Wales, it’s Nadolig Llawen, and in Sweden, God Jul.
That “Xmas” stems from Greece. The Greek “X” is a symbol for Christ.
The first artificial Christmas Tree wasn’t a tree at all. It was created out of goose feathers that were dyed. Riga, Latvia was home to the first decorated Christmas tree. The year was 1510.
About 36 million Christmas trees are produced each year on Christmas tree farms.
The Candy Cane is one of the most familiar symbols of Christmas. It dates back to 1670 in Europe but didn’t appear in the U.S. until the 1800s. The treat we see today, where the shape is Jesus’s hook to shepherd his lambs and the color and stripes hold significance for purity and Christ’s sacrifice, became common in the mid 1900s.
The Christmas Stocking got its start when three unmarried girls did their laundry and hung their stockings on the chimney to dry. They couldn’t marry, they had no dowry. But St. Nicholas (he lived in Myra in the 300s), who knew of their plight, put a sack of gold in each stocking and in the morning the girls awoke to discover they had dowry’s. They could marry.
The French gave the biggest Christmas present ever in 1886. It was the Statue of Liberty, and they gave it to the United States of America. (The French have one too, a smaller one, in Paris.)
