Millions of people from virtually every country of the world celebrate the holiday season during the Winter Solstice, and this has been true even before Christmas as we now know it existed. Pagans, farmers and common folk celebrated the coming of spring during ancient times with festivals such as the Roman Saturnalia or rituals such as the Scandinavian Yule Log. These celebrations formed the backbone of holiday traditions that we all follow to this day.
Although Christmas Revelry is largely dedicated to the Christmas holiday, we also embrace other holiday celebrations such as Hanukah and Kwanzaa. So no matter which country you live in or what holiday you celebrate… welcome. Here you can learn about the history of Christmas, learn of new ways to celebrate the holiday season, share stories of past adventures and much, much more.
