And with the recipe, I'm sharing some Christmas Facts :)

  • The very first string of electric Christmas tree lights was created in 1882.

  • Up until the 20th Century it was common for Christmas trees to be lit up by candles, something which was understandably quite dangerous!

  • The first electric Christmas tree lights were created by Thomas Edison’s business partner and friend, Edward H. Johnson, in 1882.

  • The cost involved in creating the lights and installing them was so high that they weren’t affordable to the general public until a few decades later.

  • That being said, Johnson’s Christmas tree was declared to be “the handsomest Christmas Tree in the United States”.

  • As of Christmas 2014, the world’s most expensive Christmas hamper costs £85,605! ($106,274.33) It includes a bottle of 1961 Moet, 250g (0.55 lb) of Almas Iranian Caviar and Cognac Jules Robin 1789.

  • The Rockefeller Christmas tree is topped, as of 2004, with a 550-pound (249.48 kg) Swarovski Crystal star.

  • Calennig is a welsh tradition, like carolling, where children would go round houses singing with an ornate apple.

  • The tradition of Christmas crackers comes from an old French custom of giving gifts of paper-wrapped sugared almonds.

  • Turkey replaced Swan on the Christmas menu of the Royals in 1851.

  • In Scandinavia, the holly is known as Christ Thorn.

  • One superstition regarding Christmas pudding is that it shouldn’t have more than 13 ingredients to represent Jesus and his disciples.

  • In Dublin 1742 Handel’s Messiah was first performed. Messiah is a well-known oratorio particularly at Christmas.

  • There are, traditionally, a range of trinkets left in Christmas pudding including “Bachelors Button” (if found by a single man he would be single for the following year), “Spinsters Thimble” (Same as Batchelor’s Button but for a single woman) and “a Ring” (any singleton who found this would get married the next year).

  • The “X” in X-Mas doesn’t mean what you might think it does! There’s a common misconception that the replacement of Christ with the letter X in the word Christmas is an attempt to separate the concepts of Christ and Christmas, removing the religious side of the holiday. It turns out that this couldn’t be more wrong!

  • In the Greek alphabet the letter “chi” is written as “X, and it was actually used by Christian scholars as an abbreviation for Christ’s name.bSo really, X-Mas actually means Christ-Mas, and as such is no different at all!

  • In UK churches, the largest church bell is rang an hour before midnight, at midnight all others are rang in celebration.

  • In the US, there are 2 places known as Santa Claus and Santa, they are in Indiana and Idaho respectively.

  • Since 1991, real Christmas tree sales have plummeted below that of artificial trees.

  • The Christmas carol “Silent Night” originated in Austria, it was played on a guitar as the organ was too rusted.

  • Coca-Cola’s big red Christmas truck, a modern icon of Christmas, has its own twitter account @ChristmasTruck; this was tweeted more than 57 million times in 2013.

  • Christmas crackers were originally called “cosaques” and are supposedly named after the Cossack Soldiers who would fire their guns into the air on horseback.

  • On Christmas Day 2011, there were 6.8 million iOS and Android devices activated.

  • In 2013, 1.7 million people sent Santa letters, that’s the highest percentage of over 8 million letters sent worldwide.

  • The traditional Christmas Eve meal in Armenia is a portion of fried fish, some lettuce and spinach.

  • Michigan has no state song apart from an old song written to the Christmas song “O Tannenbaum” which had the lyrics “Michagan, My Michigan”.*source
