The History of Christmas ~ a Christmas #Infographic

Have you ever wondered how Christmas originated?



Did you know that Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar, which resulted in December 25th being declared the ‘winter solstice’ and that Pope Gregory I eventually adapted the 'Pagan' festival to become a Christian celebration? Did you know that Christmas trees did not appear until 1835?




If you would like to learn more Christmas facts then I'm sure you will loved reading this infographic from Hayes Garden World about the History of Christmas!

Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976
