Have you ever wondered what christmas was like before the flannel pajamas, santa claus, and rudolph the red nosed reindeer? Well, that’s what I’m here for.
Christmas in the olden days was not even close to what you think of when you think of Christmas. Ya know those beautiful Christmas trees with the lights and the ornaments? Well, electricity was either expensive, or non-existent depending on the year we’re talking about. So those red and blue lights you’re used to seeing on every christmas tree you’ve ever seen, weren’t even invented yet. And in 1916, everybody’s attention was pointed to the war that was going on. 1916 was a scary and bloody year, so everybody was worried about what would happen. Even Christmas was different. Most of the money people would spend on presents, would be donated to winning the war.
But even though there were wars and those christmas carols everybody sings weren’t invented, people still loved christmas. People still sat by the christmas tree and had nice warm meals. So even though the coronavirus is sweeping through the world, and everybody is trying to stay safe, the christmas spirit is still here, so I hope you have a very merry Christmas. And I’ll see you next year.
