In 1860, Thomas Nast, creator of the Santa Claus image, created the image of Santa Claus.

Although the first of these was printed in London in 1846, it organized the first mass sale of Christmas cards with the phrase “Merry Christmas” printed on them, which did not begin until the 1870s.

Some people might claim that people created these rituals and traditions for fun or by companies for profit.

Remember that each tradition has a rich meaning, and strive to observe them by that meaning. In this way, you will ensure that December 24 will be more than just another holiday because you will have filled your heart with authentic love for both God and your neighbor.
