A little Christmas history



How about a Christmas story?    I found this in another blog:

"Massachusetts was the first state to make Christmas a legal holiday, in 1856.

By that time, most of our shared Christmas traditions were set, and Harper's Weekly, on January 3, 1863, featured a drawing of encamped soldiers receiving Christmas gifts from home.

Christmas become a federal holiday under President Ulysses S. Grant's 1870 declaration."

Enjoy your holiday!   And watch a good movie, like the Ingalls Christmas:
