The Origin of Christmas Traditions Explained


Have you ever wondered how did some of our Christmas tradition come from?  A majority of Americans plan to put a Christmas tree up during the holiday season.  But did you know that the tradition dates back to the Middle Ages when the Germans would celebrate the “Feast Day of Adam and Eve”.  Later, Queen Victoria of England married Price Albert, who is a German, and brought over the Christ Tree tradition.  We can’t celebrate Christmas without some caroling as well.  According to USA Today, Historians believe that these began with visits intended for people to take harvest to their lords during feudal times, and it evolves into caroling during the Victorian era.  Lastly, don’t you think eggnog is quit a weird sounding word?  It was actually root from a colonial slang word for rum – grog.  So when was first know as egg-n-grog, then later on became our beloved eggnog.
