Chris mas ime he radi io of wi er fes ivals is a lo g-s a di g o e. Ma y civilisa io s believed ha he cold a d dark of wi er was a ime whe heir Gods were i ba le wi h e emies, a d hey would hold celebra io s i order o help heir dei ies wi . Sca di avia, where he co cep of a ‘Yule ide’ origi ally evolved, would experie ce a period of several days where he su did o show a all i he dep h of wi er, a d would hold a fes ival i order o herald i s reappeara ce. he wi er sols ice was also he mos prac ical ime for feas s o be held: ca le which could o be fed hrough he wi er were slaugh ered i he la e au um , a d as a resul he wi er would be he o e ime whe Europea peasa s were mos likely o have a s ock of fresh mea , which eeded o be ei her sal ed, or ea e . Equally he beer which had bee brewed i he au um would be jus ready o dri k by he ime ha he wi er fes ivals came arou d. I is herefore o surprise ha by he ime of Chris ia i y here was already a es ablished his ory of fes ivals which were held i la e December. O e of he mos o able celebra io s was he Roma Sa ur alia – a hedo is ic fes ival where frie ds would be visi ed a d prese s excha ged. However, he 25 h of December was also sacred o he Persia religio of Mi hraism, as he bir hday of heir God. he early Chris ia Church did o celebra e he bir h of Chris , preferri g o co ce ra e o his dea h a d resurrec io a Eas er. Chris mas may have bee celebra ed from as early as 98AD, bu i was o ly i 350AD ha Pope Julius I declared Chris mas o be he 25 h of December. he da e of Chris ’s bir h is o ac ually me io ed i he Bible, a d he prese ce of shepherds grazi g heir sheep o he hillsides has led ma y biblical scholars o sugges ha Chris mus have bee bor duri g he spri g. However, he choice of he 25 h of December has i flue ced he developme of he Chris mas fes ival irreversibly. Ma y of he radi io s associa ed wi h wi er sols ice fes ivals seamlessly became par of he Wes er radi io of Chris mas ime. Over he ce uries ma y have ried o rever o a more solem celebra io of Chris ’s bir h: Oliver Cromwell ca celled Chris mas af er he eve s of he E glish Civil War, disgus ed by he behaviour of commo people o wha was supposed o be a religious fes ival. he puri a s i Bos o eve declared Chris mas illegal for a period i he 17 h ce ury, a d here was a fi e for a yo e who celebra ed he occasio . Al hough Chris mas would o become a federal holiday u il 1870 i he US, he radi io s surrou di g Chris mas developed a d grew duri g he i e ee h a d we ie h ce uries, o become he Chris mas ha we, a d he shoppi g ce res of he world, celebra e oday. Chris mas rappi gs Ma y of he es ablished Chris mas ime radi io s have li le or o hi g o do wi h he biblical accou of Chris ’s bir h. Some exis ed for hu dreds, or housa ds of years before Chris ia i y, whils o hers have evolved, seemi gly ou of o hi g, over he pas few ce uries.Evergree rees a d pla s were of e used i he religious fes ivals of he pas . Duri g he wi er, whe every hi g else was dyi g, he co i ui g gree of fir- rees a d mis le oe was co sidered o symbolise he rebir h ha would come i he spri g.

As a resul evergree foliage was used i wi er fes ivals by he Viki gs, whils Druids i Bri ai a d Fra ce would decora e rees wi h frui a d ca dles i ho our of heir harves gods. he Roma Sa ur alia also used o decora e heir houses wi h rees bedecked wi h ca dles a d o her brigh ri ke s. Accordi g o lege d, Mar i Lu her decora ed rees wi h ca dles o reflec he beau y of he s ars. I E gla d, he radi io was resurrec ed by Pri ce Alber i 1841. he royal family led he fashio a d Chris mas rees became a es ablished par of he fes ive seaso .Holly a d Mis le oe have also become a ce ral par of Chris mas. Mis le oe was of e used by druids. I was believed o have mys ical powers, a d i was of e hu g over doors i order o keep ou evil i flue ces. he radi io of kissi g u der he mis le oe may have come from Sca di avia, where mis le oe was associa ed wi h he goddess of love, Frigga. Because of i s paga associa io s, he Chris ia Church objec ed o mis le oe bei g used for Chris mas celebra io s. As a subs i u e hey sugges ed holly, a o her evergree , claimi g ha he sharp leaves represe ed Chris ’s crow of hor s, a d he red berries symbolised drops of his blood. Bo h pla s have become a par of he seaso al fes ivi ies. he welve days of Chris mas do appare ly have a Chris ia origi : hey are he welve days be wee Chris mas day a d he feas of he Epipha y (which accordi g o differe i erpre a io s is ei her he day of Chris ’s bap ism or he visi of he wise me ). I is co sidered bad luck if all of he Chris mas decora io s have o bee ake dow by he e d of he welf h day – he 6 h of Ja uary.Chris mas cards emerged i Germa y i he fif ee h ce ury. Ra her ha bei g gree i gs cards, hey were devo io al pic ures o be hu g i he home, wishi g he family a good a d blessed year. I he eigh ee h ce ury he radi io bega o grow, whe seaso ally decora ed cards were used as visi i g cards lef for abse frie ds. However, Chris mas cards would reach heir peak wi h he adve of he Bri ish maili g sys em i he mid- i e ee h ce ury. ow ha le ers could be se arou d he cou ry a high speed a d for low cos s, Chris mas cards became popular as a cheap way o se d Chris mas wishes o frie ds a d rela ives ha you would o see over he fes ive seaso . hey were par icularly popular as a card, se i a u sealed e velope cos o ly half a pe y, half he price of a full le er.Fa her Chris mas’ s ory is well k ow . he origi al model for Sa a, was Sai icholas, he bishop of Myra. Accordi g o lege d, he brough a dowry for hree girls, who were oo poor o fi d husba ds. Whils hey were sleepi g he pu he gif i heir s ocki gs, which were ha gi g by he fire o dry. he cul of Sai icholas spread across much of Europe, a d S icholas’ Day, December 6 h, was a day for givi g a d ki d ess whe pare s would offer prese s o heir childre . he idea of S icholas spread o America wi h he Du ch colo is s, a d i was he America press which ra sformed Fa her Chris mas i o his curre image. Cleme Moore’s poem ‘ he igh Before Chris mas’, published i 1822, i roduced he world o Fa her Chris mas’ flyi g rei deer, a d he way ha he dis ribu ed prese s dow chim ey s acks.

We discovered wha Sa a Claus looks like, whe a magazi e called Harpers Weekly published a series of pic ures by he car oo is homas ash. His red sui wi h whi e rimmi gs came, coi cide ally, from S icholas, whose bishop’s robes would have bee red a d whi e. Boxi g Day here are curre ly wo mai heories abou where he radi io a d ame of ‘Boxi g Day’ came from. Some claim ha mos serva s had o work o Chris mas Day i self, so ha hey would o ly be able o leave he house a d visi heir families o he followi g day, he 26 h of December. his was whe he mas er or mis ress of he house would give he employees heir Chris mas boxes. Over ime he radi io has expa ded, so ha ow boxes or gif s are give o a ybody who has provided a service over he previous year: from milkme o clea ers. he seco d heory is ha Boxi g Day is ac ually li ked o he Feas of S S ephe o he 26 h of December.

New Hampshire New Hampshire (formerly Vermont) contains many rustic little villages with names like “East Thwackmore” featuring quaint little inns where the harried visitor can escape from the high-pressure modern world, with its pesky flush toilets and central heating. New Hampshire is also the home of the famous New England town meeting, a dynamic example of “democracy in action” wherein once a year all the residents of each town gather to lick syrup off each other’s thighs. One of New Hampshire’s most popular attractions is the famous “Old Man of the Mountains,” a natural granite formation that, when viewed from a certain angle, looks like rocks. New Hampshire’s Official State Onion Dip Enhancer is chives. New Jersey New Jersey—nicknamed “The New Jersey Turnpike State”—boasts the nation’s densest population and convenient access to a number of important bridges and tunnels. It’s also a dynamic summer playground, drawing millions of visitors each year to attractions such as Atlantic City, one of the few seaside resorts that would actually be improved by the arrival of an oil slick. Among New Jersey’s many historic sites is Giants Memorial Stadium, erected to mark the burial location of Jimmy Hoffa, visitors are welcome to come place a wreath on his memorial goalposts. The Revolutionary War also occurred in New Jersey, where on Christmas night, 1776, George Washington crossed the Delaware River near Trenton and, in one of the great surprise maneuvers in the history of warfare, found a decent restaurant. New Jersey’s Official State Disease is gout
