CHRISTMAS?

18 Dec

Contacts can be found at the end of each post, and sharing with others is encouraged.

According to ET News, there are some things about Christmas that are quite surprising such as Was Jesus born in the Spring?

The Historians believe so, plus the 25th of December isn’t mentioned in the Bible. Historians believe that the date was chosen because the agricultural god Saturn gave gifts, partied, and gambled every year on the 25th of December. Let’s say it became a day for everyone, as they celebrated each in their own way.

Christmas trees came to America in the 1830s, but it is believed the Germans were the 1st to bring the trees into their homes to decorate with cookies and lights.

Giving to others on Christmas started when a very rich Christian Bishop named Nicholas, who lived in Turkey, became popular for giving gifts to the poor and the needy. When the Bishop was sainted, he became the Protector of the Children; thus, St. Nicholas.

It was the Dutch children who started the tradition of leaving food and drink out for Old St. Nick, as he was soon called as a show of affection. The Norse left treats and hey to feed the reindeer, as a variety of new concepts appeared, the Christmas and Christian celebrations flourished.

It’s not widely known that Santa Claus’s original colors were blue, white, and green, by the 1930s Coca-Cola had Santa in red, and a tradition was born. Did I mention the flying sleigh stories that began in 1819 were envisioned by the creator of The Headless Houseman in a dream?

Does anyone remember the Montgomery Ward Department Stores? The thing is they created Rudolph in 1939, but he didn’t have a red nose because the brass saw it as a sign of chronic alcoholism; they didn’t want a drunk looking reindeer. Rudolph’s only purpose was to get children to buy holiday coloring books.

Now, the part about Rudolph getting a red nose and Santa flying around the globe with magical reindeer is muddy.  More research is necessary.   🙂

Guess what? John Smith was the inventor of Eggnog, and he added the Rum. This took place at the Jamestown settlement in 1607. The Pilgrims may have been drinking, but no one was kissing under a Mistletoe. The mistletoe is really a parasite that attaches itself to a tree and then literally sucks the life out of it. The purpose is to stay green year-round.

It has been rumored that Father Joseph Mohr of Austria may have written Silent Night. It was also rumored Father Mohr wrote the song in desperation for some type of Christian music because his organ was broken. In today’s world, “White Christmas” is the best-selling song of all time, and “Jingle Bells” was supposed to be a Thanksgiving song. Strange, but true.

The number one song of all Christmas songs is, All I Want for Christmas is You, and it resides in the Guinness World Record Book for the highest-charting holiday song by none other than Mariah Carey. The highest-grossing Christmas Movie is Jim Carreys How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

On December 25th Christians like us and all over the world know Jesus is the Reason for the Season. We celebrate his birthday because it marks his 1st breath outside the womb, and it marks the beginning of the earthy story of heavenly Redemption. 

The 25th of December works for me because December 25th is all about “A birth and a death and eternal life.”
