I know Christmas is done and dusted but I thought some of you would like to know a little more about the history of christmas, post your questions here and I may be able to answer them. Did you know that beef is a popular christmas dish. King charles the second liked beef so much that he knighted it whilst eating it on christmas day. That's why some people call beef sirloin.

Mistletoe a parasite and grows on oak trees, the seeds are carried by birds onto the tree, which is known as a host. Mistletoe is part of christmas tradition because it was worshipped by those who followed the norse religion. We hang up mistletoe because the godess Frigga commanded all things execpt the mistletoe not to hurt her son Balder. The god loki instructed hordur, balders blind brother to throw the mistletoe at balder. It killed balder, therefore frigga commanded that the mistletoe be placed high up so that it could never harm anyone again.

Christmas Cards are a victorian tradition. People used to send christmas greetings to each other, these gradually evolved over the years into christmas cards

That is a complete myth, by the way. In any case, in the version I've read it was James I, not Charles II.

Why bother creating a thread offering to tell people about the history of Christmas, when many people on this forum know a lot more about it than you do?
