The English term Christmas (Old English, Cristes maesse) is actually of Merry Christmas Let It Snow Quilt Blanket recent origin: the feast day only began to be widely celebrated with a specific liturgy (the Cristes maesse) in the 9th century. The earlier term Yule, from the Germanic jōl or the Anglo-Saxon geōl, referred to the feast of the winter solstice, and made no mention of Christian church liturgy or practices. On Christmas Day, the Church traditionally celebrated three Masses. The first of these took place at midnight and celebrated of the actual birth of Christ. None of the contemporary Christmas customs have their origin in these liturgical affirmation (or masses), and most are of a much more recent date. The exchange of gifts originally took place in the early hours of the 25th when people returned home from the first, midnight mass. When it became customary to open gifts later in the day, the times of many church services were altered – another example of how far from the idea of the liturgical ‘Cristes maesse’ the holiday has come.

This is a fun question. For about 35 years now I’ve hosted a Christmas party for about 30 friends. The ‘price’ to get in is a homemade ornament. You would not believe what my friends have come up with. I have numerous boxes of Merry Christmas Let It Snow Quilt Blanket . About 8 years ago, I told them to not bring anything. But last week, party weekend, about 15 still brought one. They all said that they just loved doing it and it put them in a party, Christmas mood. So the last 8 years I had to come up an idea for the tree. Some of my best were: going through printed pictures of my friends, had some of their pets- most now gone. Vacation pics with one or more in it, and just neat / interesting landmarks etc. took over 100 to Walgreens . For a dime/picture, the copied them onto print stock. I refilled the originals and then cut out the the thing in pic I liked. Bought a stack of manila folders and a bottle of Elmer’s glue, both cheap. Opened the folders and laid them flat on my dining table that had a sheet on it, arranged all the cut-outs on the open folders to get as many as possible on each one put glue on the back of the image, pressed it onto the folder. A couple hours later, cut the pics out of the folder Now the pics were very sturdy. On the back, more glue and a metal ornament hanger. (Like 200 for $ 1) guests had a great time retelling old stories associated with the memories the photos inspired. Hope you like my ideas.

You know I am really not sure? My thoughts are that if the Merry Christmas Let It Snow Quilt Blanket are not destroyed by privatatation the custom will continue and may come back into vogue again. A hand written card is a special thing, unique to the sender of the card. If I only get a card with no writing of substance, the card has much less meaning to me. I still enjoy the family letters, although sometimes they can be a bit much depending on the writer. Email and ecards and all are convenient, but not that personable. I have two cousins who are older than I and are twins. One now sends the family letter electronically. It is really well done as she is talented in such things and the other twin sends a classic family photo, with family letter by the postal service. She is also talented and was in the printing business for some time so her card and letter are excellent. So it depends upon personal tastes and individuals gifts and preferences. There are more options now, which has merit in its own right. But if the postal service is saved so that postage doesn’t increase 10 fold or more then Christmas cards may have a future. Time will tell. For my self I am still working on my ‘seed letter’ which I will send electronically to reduce costs. I think I am motivated now to work on it today. Thanks for asking me to write my thoughts. Writing is of course a problem solving tool. And perhaps I have raised some awareness to some aspects of the Christmas season. Happy New Year.
