The word holiday derived from the notion of "Holy Day".

The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg. The word originally referred only to special religious days. In modern use, it means any special day of rest or relaxation, as opposed to normal days away from work or school.

 List of winter festivals:

 Light your Heart this Christmas♥ 

******* It is true that among other things, the Christmas spirit begins when she felt so deep-coats started to decorate our tree, garlands, mistletoe, wreaths, candles, centerpieces, dried pineapples, colored balls, lights, angels , flowers, stars, bells. The trendy colors have been away from the classics of gold, green and red, everything is in taste from year to year change models and colors with unlimited creativity.
The colored balls were created by the glass blowers of Bohemia in the 18th century to celebrate the birth of Christ.
The Advent wreath is a sign of power and abundance that is decorated with things in the house, from dry branches and flowers, nuts, candies, fruit loops, so it is placed in the door as a sign to the owner and also symbolizes eternity, without beginning or end.
The angels symbolize love, kindness and mercy, they announced to Mary that God had chosen to give birth to her son.
The star is placed on Christmas Day at the top of the tree symbolizes a guide to lead the Magi to the manger in Bethlehem.
The candles symbolize the light that shone on the child Jesus and the three colors, white, green and red symbolize:
White, the purity of birth and blessings, peace, the light of salvation.
Rojas, love, power, strength.
Green, hope, nature, life, wholeness.
Light up when they all sit at the table for dinner and off when the celebration ends. This varies, it may be before dinner, or after midnight symbolizes birth.
The bells in ancient times as the candles were used to ward off evil spirits, but today are used to announce the birth.
Mistletoe has many legends, but the most used are: use a bundle behind the door for good luck, or hang and lovers kiss beneath them also as a sign of good luck.
Place a horseshoe on the front door of our house is a sign of power and luck, and should be ongoing throughout the year, this is a custom in Argentina cottages.
The red apple is a symbol of abundance, love, health, and money.
The cones represent immortality.
The flower of Easter or Christmas, here we call federal star, is considered a plant that provides love and happiness. Natural is beautiful.
There are many ways each family and all these things will give your own meaning ♥♥♥.
