Each year more than 3 billion Christmas cards are sent in the U.S. alone.

 

All the gifts in the Twelve Days of Christmas would equal 364 gifts.

 

In A.D. 350, Pope Julius I, bishop of Rome, proclaimed December 25 the official celebration date for the birthday of Christ.

 

 

 

According to the Guinness world records, the tallestChristmas tree ever cut was a 221-foot Douglas fir that was displayed in 1950 at the Northgate Shopping Center in Seattle, Washington.  

Christmas trees have been sold in the U.S. since 1850.

 

 

Alabama was the first state in the United States to officially recognize Christmas in 1836.

 

Christmas wasn’t declared an official holiday in the United States until June 26, 1870.

 

Oklahoma was the last U.S. state to declare Christmas a legal holiday, in 1907.

 

There are two competing claims as to which president was the first to place a Christmas tree in the White House. Some scholars say President Franklin Pierce did in 1856; others say President Benjamin Harrison brought in the first tree in 1889.

 

 

President Coolidge started the White House lighting ceremony in 1923

 


Happy Holidays!
