The Date of Christmas is not the birth date of The Christ

No one knows about the date of birth of the Christ. Yes, no one cares too. The exact date of birth of the Christ has not recorded anywhere, not even in the bible. The first recorded date when the Christmas was celebrated is 25th of December 336.It was when the first Christian emperor of Rome, Constantine ruled the empire. Pope Julius was the one who declared December 25th as the official date a few years later.

It is also believed that the birth date of Sun has been inherited as the day of Christmas by the Pagans. People believe that this is due to the influence of the pagan feasts on the church. In the early BC’s there was a very strong co-dependent cultural interaction among the various believers.

The Nativity Scene is first created by a Saint

You would have noticed the nativity scene in the cribs. They are small cute and really beautiful. Have you ever thought from where the concept of the crib and the nativity came from? Even when Christmas was being celebrated in the very early times, there wasn’t a concept of Christmas crib. The famous saint St. Francis of Assisi created the first model and that is we all follow till date. The model consists of the infant Jesus, the shepherds, the angels and the parents. This was done by him as a gesture of respect and admiration toward the belief of Christmas.

Gifts Et Al was not the same in olden days

Christmas gifting is the most exciting part of Christmas. Giving and receiving gifts ion Christmas makes the day special than ever. Have you ever thought of from where the Christmas gifting originated? It came from the ancient church where the gifts were exchanged only as little deer or piccolos. They were considered very special, and the ceremony of gift giving was widely celebrated. Later on due course of time, traditions changed, and now you can get anything as a gift for Christmas; from candy to a brand new phone, anything can be gifted.

Christmas was also banned once

Yes, Christmas was banned too. In 1644 England banned the Christmas in all aspects. That day was considered a very busy market day, and so the celebration could not be allowed. Many protests happened over time and the end of 1656 the celebrations was accepted and was celebrated widely. Even though the banning was removed, there were a lot of protests, and bloodsheds happened related to the banning.

Sun God has nothing to do with Christmas

There are a lot of misconceptions around Christmas. The important one is that the history of Christmas goes back from the pagan history. Some of the people believe that the birth of Christ is deprived of the birth of God sun, Mithra. There are many similarities in both the stories and this made people believed that the birth story of Christ is not a real one.

Christmas Crackers was found by a Sweet seller

Christmas crackers are tubes like structures that will consist of small sweets and a piece of paper. Similar to the fortune cookies, they will contain small jokes or luck wishes. This tube has a small paper strip that can be pulled and a cracking sound will be heard. This will contain beautifully wrapped sweets also. This was found by a fresh sweet maker around 1845.He tried selling sweets like any other but didn’t succeed.

We all love Christmas trees. We use faux trees or Artificial plants to set up instant trees and will beautify them with lights. But a Christmas tree was not found or was decorated the time of Christ. Yes, then when did they become popular? Actually, the tradition of decorating the trees was popular from the medieval times and that was not related to Christmas. In the due course of time, the people who preliminary believed the trees are sacred moved to Christianity and they continued to decorate and celebrate their prayers and special occasions with tees.

Xmas is not just an abbreviation

We all use the word Xmas instead of Christmas. Some people hate it when the word Christ is swapped with a single word X. But the origin of the word goes long back. In Greek, the alphabet X denotes chi which is indeed the Jesus in English. While many of us use this without the meaning, it has got a very deep insight and is being used from long ago.

Santa Claus was once a saint

Saint Nicolas was the most popular saint who loved and behaved compassionately to anyone he met. He was so famous for his charity and he always tried to deliver something to the needy. With regard to his memory, the concept of Santa Claus originated. In the olden times, the Santa Claus was a priest who delivered small gifts and surprises to the people. Later, the shape, size and looks of the Santa were improvised and finally, it looks like an old man with a huge white beard in a red dress who delivers gifts to children!

Candy Canes have a story too

Candy canes are the most popular sweets in the Christmas season. Apart from the size and shape, everyone likes that. The tradition of serving candy canes during Christmas also started after Christ. It is believed that a candy man in Indiana wanted to make a special sweet for Christmas. He created white peppermint candies that represented the purity of the Christ. Later he added red stripes to demonstrate the bloodshed of Christ for the humanity and the shape of the cane represented J, which is Jesus indeed.

The true magic of holiday season can only be felt when the office space is also well-decorated with the festive touches that make the days cheery and gay which is remembered all through the winter. However, when you are willing to add a festive charm in the office space, make sure that you strike the right balance between too much and too little; otherwise, it would look tacky and disjointed.

So regardless of what style you prefer and how confined your budget is, you will never run out of ideas when it comes to making Christmas merry and bright. 

A table full of sweet-meats:

Bringing colorful delight to the table and desks would unmistakably bring a festive feel to the entire office space. The sweet setup of delicious candies and colorful treats would retain the festivity, and people would not feel like leaving the office décor. The ultimate centerpiece should hone a classic arrangement of glass jugs filled with red, blue and white peppermint balls along with plenty of fluffy marshmallows. Chocolates with multi-colored wrappers, lots of lozenges and wafers should be kept in abundance for serving as perfect sides.

Don’t leave the overhead undecorated:

When it comes to adorning the office space keeping in sync with festivity, make sure that you do not confine the bubbles, ribbons or snowflakes to the Christmas tree only. The magnificent baubles, as well as the shimmery sequences, should make its place up in the ceiling when there is nothing else to hang them down. You can accentuate overhead lighting with fresh wintery colors like blue and white which form a perfect combination together. It can be rounded off with a lovely and elegant silvery satin ribbon dangling down the ceiling.

Play up modern simplicity:

Simplicity and modernity can create a magical spell in your office décor, and it is bound to complement most of the appealing features of the space. Hang snow white stockings along with golden deer, so that accentuates the feel of Christmas and allures Santa Clause to pay a visit to your office space. The trick of beautifying your office space is to infuse your style statement into the minute details of the area.

Dress up the windows:

A bare windowsill can appear very attractive if you can keep glass bottle, jars and glasses on the ledges and fill them up with leftover decorative items and sequences for a high-impact and dramatic decoration. Holiday window decoration can be done in all sizes, shapes, and textures. Adding a dangling feathery ornament would heighten the decoration to a considerable extent.

Keep it simple:

Don’t over-decorate the office space in an attempt to make it all charming and beautiful. The secret to bringing about a show-stopping makeover is to add your personal touch on the one hand and keeping the decorative items very simple. If you overdo it, then the warmth of the items would shrink, and the whole space would look pale and cold. For a quick embellishment, fill up an empty glass hurricane with Christmas balls, ribbons and snowflakes and then put lush greens in the form of fake foliage all around this decoration.

The big, bold Christmas tree:

Bring out a new twist by decorating your fake tree with hot pink balls, feathers, and lavender in such a way that the branches of the Christmas tree attract attention even when the whole thing is tucked in a corner. This would help in keeping the office space free for easy movement and also make the Christmas tree worthy of attention. Adding a pop of color would simply do the trick, and you can do the final touch-up by keeping small gift boxes here and there to make the maximum impact.

Frost up amiably:

Make your winter white gatherings more than special by arranging a white table full of mouth-watering treats and of course, wines. You can tinge it with warmth and coziness by layering the table with an intricately embroidered white tablecloth. Pinecones, cactus and other decorative floral arrangements are going to add the Christmas charm without any extra effort.

Spruce it up with all whites:

How would it be there is an all-white Christmas tree decorated with silvery snowflakes? If you have no clue about how it would look, you may bet on that it would transform the whole office décor into a dreamy space that which would become hard to leave. If you feel if you also add a few small green Christmas trees in nooks and corners so that the whole décor stands out. None can afford to overlook the soft, feathery and captivating beauty of this Christmas tree.

Top it with cherries:

Can Christmas décor be complete without displaying lavish greenery and cherries and pinecones? The center table calls for plenty of oranges, cranberries, blueberries, cherries, apples and all others so that all of them contrives to add a warm and soothing glow to the sparkling spirit of winter and Christmas. The working desks should also speak of the Christmas feel, and you may add small decorative spaces which revamp the area without creating any obstacle while working. The idea is to enrich the area with a festive feel and not to trap it forcefully in the office décor.

Re-arrange the festive setting:

The entrance of the office should be welcoming the festivity, and therefore, you cannot overlook its impact on your workers, clients, guests and others who come to visit your office. A few unexpected characters like reindeer and Santa himself would do the job. To enhance the wintry scene, create fake snow with spray cans, add small Christmas trees of varying sizes and allow the cute snowflakes to hang down over the entrance.

With the current mashed potato dish, you can add more sweet potatoes to add further deliciousness and more calories. Use an oven instead of a saucepan.

The creamy and delicious sweet potato casserole collects all its aromatic flavors through honey and freshly grated orange zest instead of the traditional butter stick.

Marshmallows can, later on, be used for other dishes.

A healthy winter squash would be a great way for added delightfulness to all your dishes. With winter squash you can easily add rich flavors to barley pilaf. For adding a lively finish, you can use Gremolata, an Italian combination of lemon zest, parsley, and garlic that provides the dish with a lively finish.

So if you are thinking about adding this side, it can be varied by adding chopped fresh herbs and low fat cheese. 

German-inspired Warm Red Cabbage Salad is an easy to prepare quick side dish. It is cooked till tender and gets combined with sweet caraway apples and tangy vinaigrette.

Any kale can be used in preparation for this simple kale salad recipe; you just have to remember to remove tough stems even before preparation of the recipe.

Puddings and tarts 

Add up sweet caramelized pears to the comforting highlight, raisin laden bread pudding and custardy. When turned out of the baking dish, the flan-like pudding would rest at a large pool of intense caramel, which makes it worthy of its place on a holiday table. This can be served chilled or warm.

Fontina red onion and sweet potato tart is a roasted-veggie tart and serves as a great thanksgiving appetizer or side for a special dinner. The pastry dough is simple to roll on parchment and is very forgiving. The walnut laden crust becomes crisp and is served warm, but the tart can be enjoyed at cold as well as room temperature. 

Lemon-Dill Green Beans

This lemon and dill vinaigrette would be a natural complement for green beans. This would also be appearing great while drizzling with fresh sliced tomatoes or tossing with steamed asparagus. For serving ten people with the recipe, you would need to have 2 ½ times of all the ingredients: Use ¾ teaspoons mustard and 2 ½ tablespoons each shallot, lemon juice and oil, 3 tbsp dill, 2 ½ pound green beans, ¾ teaspoon pepper, and salt. 

Mushroom Casserole and Mashed Potato

Regular mashed potato can be easily fancied up by having an additional layer of mushroom duxelle-a sauté of finely chopped shallots and mushrooms. Traditional butter gets omitted in duxelles and chard can be added for getting a boost in nutrition. Instead of using regular mash potato you can serve this side and enjoy as a main dish. 

Squash as sides 

Though serving pasta would not seem like a common option for Christmas, the spaghetti cheese, and squash mac would be a comforting dish that would have guests just ready to savor the delicious flavors with a beautiful surrounding environment through silk arrangements for your table. 

Delicata squash and pears get squashed with brown sugar, bacon, and chili powder to get a delectable combination. The dish can be converted in a vegetarian one by tossing pears and squash with chili powder and brown sugar at the final 5 minutes of slow roasting. 

The Christmas table would surely be incomplete without adding cranberry to your dishes.
