This book's creation was done by chance. A group of my co-workers were discussing Christmas and why decorations, trees, and other customs are practiced. Have you ever wondered the same? One question was regarding the Christmas tree. Where did the idea originate? Whom might be responsible for the tradition? Was a person responsible for the tree or was it a cultural phenomena that grew. I am going to ask you to think back to your first memory of Christmas. It probably includes a memory of a decorated and brightly lit tree surrounded by colorfully wrapped presents. A smile always can be seen on even the most selfish and bitter person when viewing a well designed Christmas tree.

Celebrating The 12 Days of Christmas

Celebrating The 12 Days of Christmas

They delay putting up their tree and lights until Christmas Eve as a way of starkly transitioning from Advent to Christmas. This practice, however, might be soul-crushingly late for many people, especially children.

The song “The 12 Days of Christmas” is a mainstay of the holiday season, but the practice of celebrating Christmas as a twelve-day festival fell out of fashion long ago in most cultures. In Celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas, author Chris Marchand explores the history behind the season and individual feast days from December 25 to January 6, and then offers suggestions for how you can celebrate it with your family, church, or community. Along with this, he provides answers to many of the nagging questions surrounding the holiday, such as the history behind the twelve-days song, why December 25 was chosen as the date, and what to do about its supposedly pagan origins. The challenge before us is to first help people see Christmas as a holiday that begins, rather than ends, on December 25, and then to together figure out how to reinvent Christmas in the present by learning how it was celebrated in the past.
