Kids T-Shirts and Christmas: It’s getting to be that time of year again where you need to take a look at our kids T-shirts. Although we might not be able to count on snow every year with climate changes, Christmas is still Christmas. Well, if you’re looking for the true meaning of the season, you’re not alone.
Here are a few things we’ve picked up about what people have thought the holiday is really all about through the ages.
First off, as you might already be able to imagine, there have been quite a few different versions of what Christmas means. It all depends on what time frame and geographic location you’re looking at.
The phrase has its meaning in American pop culture. Of course most of us know the phrase as the celebration around the birth of Jesus.
Commercialization of Christmas
Even as far back as the 1850s, people were lamenting the commercialization of Christmas. Harriet Beecher Stowe was at the forefront of one movement that promoted making the holiday more about being thoughtful and less commercial. Her book, Christmas or The Good Fairy was a moral compass for its time.
Other Perceptions Including Kids T-Shirt Choices
There are other perceptions about the holiday you might not have thought about. Christmas isn’t a holiday designed just for Christians. People from all over the world and from different faiths can enjoy it too. That’s why we thought it would be interesting to include a Jewish perspective.
In fact, Tablet magazine has a great selection of ideas for folks looking to get into the Christmas spirit from that faith. There are a variety of fun and interesting ideas here for Jews who want to get into the Christian part of the season. For example, one article even talks about wearing a Yamaclaus. These go great with our kids T-shirts.
It’s also good to see how far we’ve come in North America when it comes to the kinds of decorations we use on our trees. As far back as the 1800s, people were using apples and nuts to decorate their Christmas trees. Now that’s a far cry from the modern ornaments we use today.
Finally, we thought it might be interesting to visit the land that has the same weather as Canada to see what their Yuletide festivities are like. We thought most Canadians would like to know that their counterparts in Finland spend a big part of their Christmas celebration in the sauna.
We thought that little piece of information might have you booking an airplane ticket to spend December 25 over there!! If you go, remember you can still take advantage of our Kids T-Shirt Sale.
