Where Christmas Traditions REALLY Came From

Hey Everyone today we got our first snow! So I know this is a little early, but I want to tell you what Christmas is REALLY about, and the things that people sometimes use to celebrate it, are really based off the bible.

1. Christmas Lights: The tradition for hanging Christmas lights, come from the easily Christians, on Christmas putting Candles in the windows of their house!
2. Candy Cane: The person who made the Candy cane was a Christian, and the red stripes on the candy was based off of the Scripture Isaiah 53.5 By His stripes we are healed.
3. Gifts: The Magi brought gifts to baby Jesus!
4. The Star: The Star on your Chistams tree, represents the star that hung over Bethlehem
6. Saint Nicholas, the REAL Santa:
Saint Nicholas' parents both died when Nickolas was a young man, his Father were the Bishop of a church, and was very wealthy, so when his parents died, Nickolas was left rich, but he wanted to know what it was lick to give up everything for Jesus, but one day when he was taking a walk he over heard a girl crying to her father, about him not having enough money for a dowry so she couldn't get married.
So that night he came back to that house, and dropped a bad of gold though the window.
This happened three times!
So Saint Nicholas is the real Santa, so next time you see lights, Santa, eat a candy cane, open a gift, remember what they really mean.
Have a Merry Christmas!
Oh and don't forget, Christ-Mas
