Christmas EveOn the night before Christmas, it is traditional for children to hang up a stocking.Children also put food and drink out for Santa and his reindeer.Many Christians go to midnight mass at church.
The Christmas Day dinnerTurkeys were first used when people had large families in the Victorian times, when a goose wasnt big enough. So they started using a turkey instead, which they had kept in their garden every year.
The Christmas pudding originated as a 14th century "porridge" called frumenty that was made by boiling beef and mutton with raisins, currants, prunes, wines and spices.
Christmas crackers were invented by Thomas Smith in 1846.
Christmas decorationsThe evergreen tree was an ancient symbol of life in the midst of winter. Romans decorated their houses with evergreen branches during the New Year and planted them in boxes inside their houses in wintertime.
