Festive facts for Christmas and New Year 2018/19

  • It’s commonly believed that eating mince pies is illegal on Christmas Day. It really was in the 1600s thanks to Oliver Cromwell, but King Charles II rewound this crazy law.
  • Boxing Day has several origin stories which range from Victorian Church boxes and gift boxes for servants to take home, however, none are definitive.
  • Mistletoe’s mystical properties stem back to the Celts and Norse people who believed there was something mystical about the plant as the sprigs stayed green in winter even when the tree has lost its leaves. The concept of kissing under mistletoe, however, comes from an ancient Norse tale.
  • Hogmanay is the Scottish word for the last day of the year and has become synonymous with New Year celebrations. It is usually celebrated from New Year’s Eve all the way into January 2.
