Today is Christmas! Deck the halls with boughs of holly and send free Christmas eCards to family and friends. You can even include a Christmas gift card to celebrate the season. This Christian holiday, marking the birth of Jesus, is a joyous occasion celebrated with loved ones near and far. Traditionally, festivities often include a Christmas feast, gift exchanges, church celebrations, a visit from Santa Claus, and holiday parties.
Did you know that from 1649 to 1660, Oliver Cromwell banned Christmas carols and parties in England? He thought that Christmas should be a solemn holiday and the only celebrations should be church services. This law obviously didn't last!
So hang up a Christmas wreath, enjoy some delicious Christmas cookies at home, kiss a loved one under the mistletoe, or take part in a virtual gift exchange. However you decide to celebrate today, make sure to wish your friends and family a Merry Christmas!
