History of Christmas Traditions

Posted on the 27 November 2012 by Infographixdirectory @infographixdir

With the swift arrival of different kinds of digital technology from social media to smart phones, webcams and tablet devices, some Christmas traditions are fading away. The Christmas letter or card that updates the recipient on families who are miles or oceans away has been overtaken by e-mail, e-cards, photo MMS, and other instant messages. The urban lifestyle has become so fast-paced that homemakers, especially working mothers, hardly have time to put up the Christmas décor, much less the Christmas tree. Yet certain traditions are worth retaining.

Across the world, Christmas is celebrated in a multitude of rich and cherished traditions. Their origins are wonderfully varied, emerging out of cultures and beliefs throughout history. This illustrated timeline, brought to you by Balsam Hill, captures the flow of some of the most popular Christmas traditions and figures and traces their simple lineage from St. Nicholas’ humble beginnings to today.
