As a genealogist I am always interested in how our ancestors celebrated holidays and how they were different in other times in history. This graphic is from a collection of vintage and wartime Christmas clip art found at http://christmas-clipart.net/.
You can watch some videos about the history of Christmas and Santa Claus at the website for the History Channel at http://www.history.com/minisites/christmas/.
If you are interested in how different countries celebrate Christmas, check out http://www.thehistoryofchristmas.com/ and http://www.allthingschristmas.com/traditions.html.
Food is a big part of our Holiday traditions. Here's a website that provides some information about food associated with Christmas, http://www.foodtimeline.org/christmasfood.html.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
