Christmas…the most festive time of the year. I have fond memories of decorating the tree, helping my mom with the lights or at least attempting to, hanging the stockings on the mantel, being with family, eating amazing food, and then on Christmas Day - seeing a bounty of presents under the tree with our home being filled with joy, love and laughter.
But my question is; where did all the traditions of Christmas come from. Many will say that it is the birth of Christ that we are celebrating. Is that the case or are our traditions far older then we realize? So, settle in with some hot cocoa, eggnog, or whatever you prefer and listen to the true origins of some of our Christmas Traditions.
