Sneak a Peek Under the Tree

  • Evergreens aren’t just about the holiday spirit; ancient Egyptians and Romans had a soft spot for them too during winter solstice.
  • The “We wish you a Merry Christmas” tune? Back in the day, it was less ‘wishing’ and more ‘demanding’!
  • Male reindeer shed their antlers in early December, while females keep theirs through the winter. So, technically, Rudolph would likely be female!
  • Rockefeller’s Christmas tree started as… well, let’s just say, modest. But it’s grown in more ways than one!
  • And hundreds more jolly Christmas trivia facts!

Facts All Wrapped Up in Categories

From “Christmas Around the World” to “The Economics of Christmas,” there’s something in this festive fact treasury for everyone. And if you’ve got a penchant for pop culture, a hankering for history, or even a weakness for winter wildlife – we’ve got a chapter for you.

  1. Renee S

    I found myself giggling while reading through some of these fun facts about Christmas, as I am a Christmas enthusiast. The book educated me about the historical traditions of Christmas worldwide, which I found quite fascinating. I even learned that people who put up their Christmas tree early tend to be happier, and I can attest to that as I am one of them. All in all, it’s a fun-filled book that the whole family can enjoy. I highly recommend it!

  2. Walter E. Mark

    I don’t know which is better in this book, the trivia or the humor.
    If you like trivia, this book is for you. If you like levity then your in for a treat. This book combines both, reading snippet to snippet. It’s hard to stop reading.

  3. Katie

    I give 4.5 stars (rounded up to 5) to this book full of interesting and festive facts. Some I already knew, but there were lots of new facts, too. I appreciated the book’s organization by topic in each chapter. Sometimes, facts were repeated, but in a book of so many facts, that’s understandable! At times, the jokes seemed too cheesy/forced for my taste, but other times, they made me laugh. Overall, I liked learning some new fun facts to share at holiday gatherings. This book will help me enjoy aspects of Christmas even more now that I know more about them.

    I received a review copy for free from BookSirens, and I am leaving this review voluntarily with my honest opinions.

    I love how the facts were divided into topics (all having to do with Christmas but still). It was nice that there wasn’t just a block of facts, but categories including ‘Nature” where I learned that a holly plant can be both male or female and only one gender had berries. I also learned that mistletoe is a parasite, which is wild. I love how the facts are all cited as well at the end of each section.

  6. Shazzie

    Lots of fun facts about how Christmas is celebrated around the world both historical and modern. There are a lot of references but then I guess that’s what you need for facts – to know they are true and authentic. You will be amazed at the amount of money that is spent around the world and how extensive this holiday is! Fun book. If you love Christmas you’ll love this book!
