Do you know how mistletoe became a staple Christmas decoration? Or that giving fruit, or the much maligned fruitcake, at Christmas has its roots in a theology lesson?
So whether you want to deck your halls rich with Christian symbolism or just want a history lesson in Christmas decorations, the local Catholic Church has you covered with information. May the peace and love of this Christmas season bless you throughout the New Year.
