Merry Christmas Eve and have you eaten an apple?

History of Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve marks the climax of Christmas Eve, and the fourth Sunday of Christmas Eve begins. Many churches will mark the end of Advent with a church ceremony at midnight.

In Latin America, Christmas Eve marks the end of the nine-day period before Christmas. This period is called “Las Posandas” and represents the Virgin Mary has no months to give birth before giving birth to Jesus.


How to celebrate Christmas Eve?

In Christian society, on Christmas Eve, every family traditionally places a Christmas tree. That night, the whole family reunited in the living room, singing Christmas songs around the Christmas tree, exchanging gifts, sharing the joys and sorrows of life, expressing their inner blessings and love, and praying for happiness in the coming year.

In China, giving apples to each other is a major feature of Christmas Eve. So why to send apples on Christmas Eve? Sending apples means peace and happiness. Some people think that apples are round, which symbolizes the blessing of happiness and reunion. Today, Kingford has prepared apples for each of our colleagues, and everyone is very happy.


Christmas Eve Traditions

That night on Christmas Eve, children around the world leave food and drinks to those who come to their homes to bring them gifts. Who this is depends on which part of the world you live in. It could be Santa Claus or Santa Claus; but in Switzerland the gift will be given by a Christ child. In Denmark it is a Christmas elf; in Sweden it is a little man; in Finland it is a Christmas goat!

In Latvia, the custom is that after Christmas Eve dinner, you can open the gift under the Christmas tree and twist it slightly-you must recite a little poem before you get the gift.

A unique tradition of Irish Christmas decoration is to place a large white candle on the door or window of the house, which is lit by the youngest child on Christmas Eve. This is a symbol of welcoming the Holy Family, and the candle can only be extinguished by a girl or a woman named Mary.
