Ho, Ho, Ho! “Tis The Season to be Jolly! So, let us discuss the Christmas Gifts for golfers.
As the Holiday Season approaches, our families and friends are uppermost in our minds.
And we think about those who are still with us as well as those who have passed away and whom we miss.
Traditionally, we want to celebrate those we love by giving them gifts.
There is a saying that goes, “it is more blessed to give than to receive”.
So, why is the buying of gifts often one of the more stressful, unfulfilling parts of the holiday season?
I’m not sure why this is, but my aim is to take the stress away with Christmas gifts for golfers, especially the golfers that you love.
But, just for fun, here are some historical Christmas Traditions:
The much loved symbol of Christmas in America, the Poinsettia, came from Mexico in the early 1800s.
In fact, it was brought to the United States by Joel R. Poinsett, who was the then American Minister to Mexico. It immediately gained in popularity and was grown in greenhouses, so that by the turn of the century it had become a widespread symbol of Christmas.
Decorated Christmas Trees were first encountered around the 17th Century in Germany in Strasbourg.
This sprang from the German tradition of decorating fir trees for the winter solstice. The tradition had spread to other parts of Germany by the 18th Century. Then from there to the rest of the world.
The habit of sending Christmas Greetings Cards originated in England. In the late 1830s.
A gentleman, whose name was John Calcott Horsley, began creating his own with seasonal pictures and messages of greeting. These he would send to family and friends. Thus began the tradition of sending cards at Christmas.
The custom of hanging Mistletoe from the ceiling or in a doorway began in Victorian England.
So, someone who found themselves standing underneath the Mistletoe might be kissed by another in the room. This, of course, was highly inappropriate behavior in the society of the day. Nevertheless, the tradition endured.
And what of Santa Claus?
Well, children around the world celebrate his arrival and he is known differently in each country. In the UK he is Father Christmas and Santa Claus in the USA. In France he is Père Noël. Russian children welcome Ded Moroz and Snegurochka (Father Frost and Snow Maiden). Sweden’s children have Jultomten (a sort of dwarfish Santa). Julenissen is a Norwegian elf who brings gifts for children. Finland has a Yule Goat and then Austria, Switzerland and Germany have Christkind, who is female, and brings gifts at Christmas. There are many more.
These are only a few of the many Christmas traditions that exist around the world.
On the whole, these traditions have emerged from both religious and secular beliefs. It is definitely the holiday that has achieved the most renown and is celebrated by millons worldwide.
