A Few Fun Facts For The Holidays


Given the different time zones, Santa has 31 hours to deliver gifts, but his reindeer

holiday fun facts really have to fly, since that means visiting 823 homes per second.


The single busiest shopping hour for the holidays is December 24 between 3 and 4 in the afternoon. 


Christmas cookies originated when pre-Christian Romans gave sweet cakes to their senators. 


Saint Nicholas was a real person. He was a kind bishop who brought presents to children and needy people. To this day folks leave their shoes outside in the hope that St. Nick will fill them!

Celebrating Hanukkah
December 8 - 16

Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, is observed by the lighting of a Menorah, with one additional light lit on each night of the holiday, until the last candle is lit. The lighting of the candles celebrates how one night's oil lasted for eight nights in the purification of the temple. Hanukkah begins on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, which varies from year to year on the Western calendar. Take a moment and enjoy our greeting to you!
