Ho! Ho! Ho!
So, it’s Christmas, is it? Do you know the story behind Christmas? Of Course, you do! Duh, Me!
But did you know that it’s absolutely fine to refer to Christmas as X’mas, as it can also mean Christmas; but that it should be pronounced ‘Christmas’ rather than ‘ex-mas’!
Ok, so you know that too! But, do you know the various traditions attached to Christmas and how it is celebrated around the world?
Ha! Gotcha! Fret not, my child! ‘Coz I bring to you the Christmases’ Around the Globe.
Psst.. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus, but it is commonly thought that Jesus was actually born in Spring or Autumn and not in Winters. No one knows the real birthday of Jesus!
