At Christmas, we see colors like red, gold, and green everywhere. It is used to decorate our homes and clothes, but why? HomesandGardens.com claims that the custom has religious roots. Gold represents the gifts of the three Kings, red represents Christ's blood, and green represents eternal life.
A Christmas tree is probably the next thing that comes to mind when you think of Christmas. For many families, the most common Christmas tradition is probably decorating Christmas trees. It began with the agnostic culture: According to homesandgardens.com, people hang branches in their homes during the winter to celebrate the coming of Spring. Evergreen was believed, among other things, to ward off witches, evil spirits, and diseases in many nations. According to history.com, "devout Christians brought decorated trees into their homes in the 16th century, and Germany is credited with starting the Christmas tree tradition as we know it today."
Stockings are famous for decorating fireplace mantles at Christmas. This Christmas tradition has a number of origin stories. According to one legend, St. Nicholas anonymously dropped a gold coin down the chimney of a family in need of assistance. The coin got caught in a stocking that had been dried out. According to truwest.org, the famous line from the well-known poem "Visit from St. Nick," which describes how "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there," was the first reference to Christmas stockings being hung near a chimney in the early 1800s.
