Christmas Facts for Kids
- Christmas is the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth.
- Christmas trees were first used by ancient Egyptians and Romans.
- The term ‘Xmas’ is short for Christmas.
- Santa Claus was known as Sinterklaas in Dutch.
- He did not always dress up in red clothes.
- Rudolph, the ‘Red-Nosed Reindeer’ has helpers too!
Christmas is an annual Christian holiday to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It is celebrated on the 25th of December in the western catholic church.
The modern Christmas tree started in Germany in the 16th century. But the origin of the Christmas tree goes back to the ancient Egyptians and Romans.
Using the term “Xmas” also goes back to the 16th century. “X” in Xmas comes from the ancient Greek language, where Christ begins with the letter X. Therefore is Xmas simply short for Christmas?
The character “Santa Claus” is based on Saint Nicholas. The legend tells us he was a Christian bishop who helped the poor and needy. He was called Sinterklass in dutch, which became later Santa Claus.
But it is not true that Santa Claus only wears red cloth. He used to wear green, purple, or blue. But Coca-Cola decided to dress him up in red to match their brand and it got stuck. This is why he appears everywhere in red cloth now!
Did you know Rudolph the reindeer had helpers? The story tells that Rudolph was chosen by Santa to pull his sled on Christmas Eve. But he actually didn’t do it alone. There were eight other reindeer (Cupid, Dancer, Vixen, Dunder, Comet, Dasher, Prancer, and Blixem) who helped him.
