Here we have some beautiful Christmas images, decoration from around the, and some facts we probably dont know about Christmas.

CHECK OUT THESE 10 FACTS ABOUT CHRISTMAS
1. Christmas supposedly marks the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25. But there is no mention of December 25 in the Bible and most historians actually believe he was born in the spring.

2. Though Santa Claus has worn blue and white and green in the past, his traditional red suit came from a 1930s ad by Coca Cola.


3. "Silent Night" is the most recorded Christmas song in history, with over 733 different versions copyrighted since 1978.


4. Two weeks before Christmas is a popular time for couples to break up.

According to data analyzed from Facebook posts, two weeks before Christmas is one of the two most popular times for couples to break up. However, Christmas Day is the least favorite day for breakups.



5. In Norway on Christmas Eve, visitors should know that after the family's big dinner and the opening of presents, all the brooms in the house are hidden. The Norwegians long ago believed that witches and mischievous spirits came out on Christmas Eve and would steal their brooms for riding.


6. The first Christmas card was created in England on December 9, 1842.


7. An average household in America will mail out 28 Christmas cards each year and see 28 eight cards return in their place.


8. Alabama was the first state to recognize Christmas as an official holiday in the 1836, while Oklahoma was the last to recognize.


9. According to the National Christmas Tree Association, Americans buy 37.1 million real Christmas trees each year; 25 percent of them are from the nation's 5,000 choose-and-cut farms.




10. Jesus Christ, son of Mary, was born in a cave, not in a wooden stable. Caves were used to keep animals in because of the intense heat. A large church is now built over the cave, and people can go down inside the cave. The carpenters of Jesus' day were really stone cutters. Wood was not used as widely as it is today. So whenever you see a Christmas nativity scene with a wooden stable that's the "American" version, not the Biblical one.
