Learn More About The Christmas House Drawing

It's that time of year again. You can set the scene with this Christmas house drawing.

Have you ever wondered where the tradition of Christmas decorations like those in this cartoon came from? Today's Christmas traditions are an amalgamation of celebrations from the past. For example:

  • The Christmas tree - ancient peoples decorated their homes with evergreen plants in the winter because these seemed to have a supernatural ability to survive when other plants couldn't. In medieval Germany, these customs were mixed with Christian beliefs about Adam and Eve and the "paradise tree." The Christmas tree was cemented in the modern mythos during the 1800s after the tradition was adopted by the British royal family.
  • Christmas lights - in ancient times, worshipers lit fires to try to revive their "dying" sun god as the days got shorter. Later, this became linked with Christ's comment that he was the "light of the world."
  • Christmas ornaments - previously, apples or wafers were symbolically hung from the trees. By the 1500s, craftsmen were making them from blown glass. Interestingly, the earliest ornaments were in the shape of fruits or nuts.

Sometimes, gingerbread houses are used as Christmas decorations. These edible houses are designed to resemble a Christmas house with decorations.
