The #History Of Traditions Associated With #Christmas, And Other Winter #Holidays

Want to learn about the history behind many of the traditions we associate with Christmas today? How about learning a little about how the holidays are celebrated around the world? Or, perhaps, you're just looking for some holiday fun, so you can make the holidays last a little longer?

If any of those applies to you, check out Why Christmas?. It's an interesting site.

Whatever you're celebrating, or have recently celebrated, be it Christmas, Yule, or some other holiday that happens around this time of year, I hope your celebrations went well, are going well, or go well when you get to them.

Happy holidays, whatever you celebrate!

From me, Kelly, Joshua the degu, Baggins the gerbil, Star the rat, Skye the rat, Mollie the chinchilla, and Maizie the chinchilla.

I didn't look at all the links but the ones I did were interesting. So, December 5th in Scandinavia? Santa does look like a bishop with that hat there. Postal worker comes up with Christmas cards? Figures. But it was brilliant! :) Hope you had a good one and are looking forward to New Year's! :)

I'm glad you enjoyed reading what you did look at. If you look at any more of it, I hope you enjoy it as much as you enjoyed what you've read so far.

It was a good Christmas. We're not doing anything special to see in the new year, but I'm hoping 2017 will be a better year for everyone.
