Christmas Trivia, Fun and Games

The three months at the end of the calendar year represent most retailers’ best hope for a successful year. Many do as much business then as in the preceding nine months. And that business revolves around the celebration of the birth of a Child more than two thousand years ago. So, in the spirit of the season, let’s take a brief look at interesting tidbits, back stories and other oddities that have developed during those years.

What’s so special about rosemary?

After Joseph and Mary had been warned that King Harod sought to kill the young “King of the Jews,” they fled into Egypt. Stopping to rest by a stream, Mary took advantage of the pause to wash the Baby Jesus’ clothes. With no clothesline available, she laid them on a fragrant nearby bush to dry. The bush was henceforth called “Rosemary” for its service to the Christ child, and its blossoms forever more became the blue of Mary’s robes.
