Here are a few random Christmas history facts:
- People 100 years ago argued about whether to wish you a “Merry Christmas” or a “Cheery Christmas”
- Oyster stew used to be a common Christmas dinner dish
- Santa’s red suit was made popular by a Coca-Cola ad in the 1930s
- Christmas trees used to be lit up with real candles. (Seems insanely dangerous!)
- Nobody knows for sure how the traditions of hanging Christmas stockings or drinking eggnog got started.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!
