Christmas Fun Facts That Will Surely Amuse You

Tis The Season To Be Jolly… There is magic in the air! I thought of this song today as it best represents the spirit of Christmas – the twinkling fairy lights, yummy Christmas cakes, Christmas carols and the joy of Christmas. You’re smiling, aren’t you? So am I. In 2015, Christmas falls on a Friday and this provides you with the time to learn a little more about the holiday. Without further ado, here are some Christmas Fun Facts that are sure to amuse you.
  1. Did you know that The Statue Of Liberty was gifted to the United States of American by the French in 1886 and is the biggest Christmas present ever!
  2. Statue of Liberty

  3. Stockings are a crucial ornament used to decorate our house for Christmas. Well the story behind the stockings is that there were three unmarried girls who did their laundry and hung their stockings on the chimney to dry. They couldn’t marry as they had no money for dowry. It is believed that St. Nicholas, who knew of their plight, put a sack of gold in each of their stocking and in the morning the girls awoke to discover they had dowries.
  4. O Wow

  5. We all love to sing Christmas carols with our family during Christmas. One of the most popular Christmas Song ever is We Wish You a Merry Christmas. The song can be traced back to England, but its author and composer remains unknown.
  6. We wsih you a Merry Christmas
  7. We often refer to Christmas as Xmas. Did you know the famous “Xmas” stems from Greece and in Greek “X” is a symbol for Christ.

  9. Doesn’t all of us just love a good old scary story? Well, the word on the street is that telling scary ghost stories was an old Christmas Eve Tradition that has died out in the past century.

  11. The mood is right The spirits up We're here tonight And that's enough Simply having a wonderful Christmas time Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

    All of us practically grew to the tunes of The Beatles. The little known fact here is that Paul McCartney earns nearly half a million dollars every year from his Christmas song A Wonderful Christmas Time, which critics regarded as his worst song ever. Paul Mcartyney

  12. Don’t we all just love candy canes? Well, I just found out that a confectioner developed candy canes to represent Jesus. The shape of the "J" was for Jesus, or the shepherd's staff. The white color symbolized purity, while the red stripes indicated blood.
  13. Candy cane funny
  14. The best part of Christmas for me is decorating the tree. You will be shocked to find out that in India during earlier times, instead of having traditional Christmas trees, a banana or mango tree was decorated.
  15. Oh really...

When I was a kid, I believed wholeheartedly that people in Mumbai ate only Paav Bhajis. Blame it on Bollywood that always showed the people in Mumbai having a good time with Paav Bhajis. I was perplexed and a little scared by the notion of eating just Paav Bhajis. It may be one of the reasons that i never wanted to shift to Mumbai. But when i did, boy, I had a fulfilling time discovering the culinary delights of Mumbai. For the naive ones like me and for the foodies, I present my top 8 places to eat in Mumbai:  Khyber - Eating in a cave had always been one of my unfulfilled fantasies - until Khyber restaurant in Mumbai.
