    TIS THE SEASON

    Here are some Christmas traditions , folklore, and superstitions.

    For many of us Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Many traditions have come from this time of year.

    Long ago, this time of year was known as the festival of light.

    It lasted for 12 days , starting 3 days after the winter solstice on December 21, hence December 24th Christmas eve.

    The days were short, dark cold and gloomy, and folks were ready for spring and wanted to ensure a good spring planting.

    Many of the things we incorporate into our holiday celebration have been around for hundreds of years, over the coming days, it will be my goal to share with you the meaning of many of the things we do and why our ancestors originally did them.

    Please feel free to share your holiday traditions, special foods,  or just a warm story.

      Thank You sully and Harve$t Moon for your delicious recipes.  MY mouth was watering. I am a Vegetarian and need other foods to eat. No meats or diary products in my house. I have to replace my protein with protein products.  I am a Vegetarian for medical reasons. Your recipes sound great!

        The red and green of Christmas

        Why we have a Christmas tree.

        Christmas trees are evergreens, The evergreen is a symbol of renewed life,

        The greeness was to ensure a good spring, people decorated the house with as much evergreen as possible, at some point someone came up with the idea to bring the whole tree into the house, times must have been tough.

        They decorated all the doors with wreaths, archways and mantles were covered with evergreen.

        All the tables had evergreen centerpieces.

        Holly, is believed to have protective powers against evil forces, witches and goblins.

        The Holly was incorporated with as much evergreen as possible.

        and there you have the red and green of Christmas.

        Now Holly being considered male in nature , needed a counterpart...Ivy, female in nature.

        The symbol for man and woman being brought together.

        Ivy is considered very good luck when it grows on the home.

        Traditionally,  ivy should never be brought into the home except for the 12 days of Christmas, and it should never be given as a gift.

        Folklore suggests on New Years eve. That if you place an ivy leaf in a bowl of water for 12 days, after the 12 days if the leaf is still green you will have good health throughout the year, if it has black spots, it good be a sign of illness or even death.

        Evergreens, brought home from church should be kept all year long for good luck.

        next, decorating the tree.

                I wish I could have done more, I worked everyday right up until Christmas  then got sick with the flu, so next year I'll have everything ready to go.

                Until then I am gathering info on something else and wil post it when it's complete.
