Three Christmas “Did You Knows” to Make You the Smartest Kid on Your Block

Three Christmas “Did You Knows” to Make You the Smartest Kid on Your Block

I wanted to share three quick, simple, and interesting facts about Christmas: 
  • Did you know that Christmas wasn't a holiday in old America – I mean way-back-when. In fact, Congress was in session on December 25, 1789, the country's first Christmas under the new constitution. Christmas wasn’t declared a federal holiday in the United States until June 26, 1870.

  • Any idea how many – real – Christmas trees are sold in the United States each year? Between 30 and 35 million! Christmas trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold.

  • Did you know that Rudolph, “the most famous reindeer of all,” was “born” more than a hundred years after his eight flying counterparts? In 1939, Robert L. May wrote a poem about Rudolph to help lure customers into the Montgomery Wards department store.
You see? I told you it’d be quick – and you’d be the latest Christmas smarty pants! And just so you know, I adapted this information from the History channel.
