Anyone who knows me accepts the fact that I am a Christmasaholic! Christmas is my favorite time of year and I am very excited to share that with my readers! This year, I will be posting different products into my Holiday Gift Guide for everyone! There will be ideas for boys and girls, as well as men and women. I hope you will check back with me every day to see what we will be discussing next!
I thought I would post some festive facts to get everyone in the holiday mood. Here are 3 interesting facts to get you started.
- In A.D. 350, Pope Julius I, bishop of Rome, proclaimed December 25 the official celebration date for the birthday of Christ.
- The “true love” mentioned in the song “Twelve Days of Christmas” does not refer to a romantic couple, but the Catholic Church’s code for God. The person who receives the gifts represents someone who has accepted that code. For example, the “partridge in a pear tree” represents Christ. The “two turtledoves” represent the Old and New Testaments.
- The traditional three colors of Christmas are green, red, and gold. Green has long been a symbol of life and rebirth; red symbolizes the blood of Christ, and gold represents light as well as wealth and royalty.
Stay tuned! The first items on my gift guide will be posted later today!
