Funny Christmas facts PDF Print E-mail

Christmas is a festive time of the year–food, good company and best of all the time off from work. There are many things that most people will know about Christmas such as the Nativity story, the Star of Bethlehem, Santa, et al.
However, there are other things that only those who go in search of the bizarre may know off hand. Here is a list of funny, yet interesting Christmas facts.
• Pig head, it’s what’s for dinner. The traditional Christmas dinner in England used to be a pig head prepared with a mustard sauce. Most English folk are possibly quite delighted that this isn’t the case anymore.
• Forego throwing out the Christmas tree and make it lunch. The evergreen is actually edible, well most parts of it anyway. It’s just one step away from any other vegetable.
• Bake bread on Christmas Eve and it will remain fresh forever. While it cannot be known now how many people believed this, it’s pretty obvious that any believers would be converted after the appearance of mold on their bread beyond five days or so.
• Kris Kringle really lives in the North Pole. But he foregoes the reindeer and drives a 1984 Ford Tempo, and he delivers pizza instead of working in a magical toy shop.
