Christmas: A History

The word Christmas was derived from the Old English Cristes Maesse or 
"Mass of Christmas."  Over the centuries it has become a comprehensive word 
including both the religious traditions and the secular traditions.

In North America, the early immigrants brought their different Christmas traditions. 
The Germans brought the Christmas tree, the Irish contributed the lights in windows 
of homes, Catholic immigrants brought Midnight Mass and everyone had their own 
Christmas carols.

Many happy traditions revolve around the Yuletide season, but have you ever 
wondered when we started celebrating Christmas and how it came about? For a 
closer look at the origin of this beloved holiday visit the Tree Classics blog.

A Merry Christmas to you from our family to yours!
