Historical Christmas Events

Christmas has been around a long time, a very long time! Did you know it became a federal holiday in the United States since 1870? Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive! Christmas is my favorite holiday, I love watching the smiles on kids faces as they open Christmas presents on Christmas morning.

Scotch tape was invented in 1930 before that they used string and sealing wax.
