Christmas cookies are traditionally sugar biscuits and cookies are cut into various shapes related to Christmas, such shapes as those of candy canes, reindeer, and holly leaves. Some children have left cookies and milk on a table for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, though many people simply consume the cookies themselves.
Different Christian meanings are giving to the parts of the canes. The ‘J’ can also mean Jesus. The white of the cane can represent the purity of Jesus Christ and the red stripes are for the blood he shed when he died on the cross. The peppermint flavor can represent the hyssop plant that was used for purifying in the Bible.
A large candle was used to represent the star of Bethlehem for the first time in the middle ages. Jesus is sometimes called ‘the Light of the World’. This might have started the custom of the Advent Crown and Advent Candles. Candles were also used to decorate Christmas Trees, until safer electric lights were invented!
Many children put a boot outside the front door or on the fireplace for Santa to fill them with presents. He first checks up on the children to see if they were good, polite during last year. If they were not, they will have a tree branch in their boots instead.
People from all over the world also like to wear santa hats around Christmas time! Santa’s hat is part of the costume that he wears. Typically he wears a white fur trimmed red jacket and pants with a broad buckled belt, a matching hat and black boots.
Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle and simply “Santa”, is the mythical figure with legendary, historical and folkloric origins who brings gifts to the homes of the good children from all over the world on December 24.
In order to travel across all over the world and to deliver all the present to the homes of the good children, and Rudolph to be able to pull the sleigh, Santa Claus needs snow. So snowflakes falling form the sky always helps.
In Christian tradition, the Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas Star, revealed the birth of Jesus to the Biblical Magi and later led them to Bethlehem. The Christmas tree lights represent stars.
In Germany, the first Christmas Trees were decorated with edible things, such as gingerbread and gold covered apples. Then glass makers started making special and beautiful small glass ornaments.
Christmas ornaments are decorations (usually made of glass, metal, wood or ceramics) that are used to festoon a Christmas tree. Ornaments take many different forms, from a simple round ball to highly artistic designs. Ornaments are almost always reused year after year, rather than purchased annually, also often passed on and augmented from generation to generation.
In Victorian times, it was very fashionable to go carol singing with small handbells to play the tune of the carol. Sometimes there would only be the bells and no singing! Handbell ringing is still popular today. It is traditional that the largest bell in the church is rung four times in the hour before midnight and then at midnight all the bells are rung in celebration.
Santa's best friends, the Christmas Elfs. They are a diminutive creatures (elfs) that lives with Santa Claus in the North Pole and acts as his helpers. Christmas elves are often depicted as green or red clad with pointy ears and pointy hats. Santa’s elves are often said to make the toys in Santa’s workshop and take care of his reindeer, among other magical tasks.
The prickly leaves represent the crown of thorns that Jesus wore when he was crucified. The berries are the drops of blood that were shed by Jesus because of the thorns. It is traditional to take down the decorations on Twelfth Night (also known as Epiphany) on January 6th.
All over the world, everybody receive presents from Santa. The presents are left in shoes or boots put out by the children. In many countries, presents may be left under the Christmas Tree. They are often opened on Christmas day morning with the whole family.
Rudolph is a reindeer with a glowing red nose, popularly known as “Santa’s 9th Reindeer.” When depicted, he is the lead reindeer pulling Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve. The luminosity of his nose is so great that it illuminates the team’s path through winter weather.
