The most wonderful time of the year is upon us. Cheer, food, family, presents and hangovers are all primed to shine. Despite Christmas being many people’s favorite time of the year there are a huge number of misconceptions and lies surrounding this hallmark holiday; the largest being that it never was the supposed birthday of Jesus Christ. While no one knows the exact day he may have been born, the bible (if it can truly be trusted) makes it very clear it could not have been in December. But I digress, for most people this holiday has nothing to do with Christ and everything to do with turkey and wine. So here are some of the lighter more interesting facts surrounding Xmas. PS. Bonus Fact: The term “Xmas” isn’t actually meant to remove “Christ” from the holiday’s title. X is the ancient Greek abbreviation for Christ.
