Merry Christmas 2008!

Christmas Day is only a few days away. Many people don't realize that the celebration of Christmas originated in Northern Europe (particularly in the Celtic and Germanic regions). The Catholic Church adopted many pagan rituals and traditions to convert the local people to the Christian religion. Nevertheless, this is a happy special moment to support each other, give to the sick/needy, and celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ.

Looking for ways to enjoy the holidays? Don't forget to read Charles Dickens' famous novel, A Christmas Carol. For those of you who are looking for Christmas ghost stories, origins and legends, check out the links below:

Happy holidays, everyone, and celebrate with your family and friends.

Enjoy the beautiful Christmas music below by Celtic Woman and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
