Inside you'll discover over over 500 fascinating facts and trivia about Christmas traditions from around the world.



Did you know the evergreen fir tree has traditionally been used to celebrate winter festivals—both Pagan and Christian—for thousands of years? The green branches serve as a vivid reminder that spring will return.


When it comes to choosing the perfect Christmas tree, different countries have certain preferences. This depends on cultural traditions, personal preferences, and what’s available.


The crews onboard the International Space Station celebrate Christmas at two different times. Most astronauts celebrate on December 25th. But the Russians celebrate the Orthodox Christmas, which falls on January 7th. 


There’s a box of Christmas decorations on the ISS that crews use to make the place feel more festive around the holidays. The decorations include plastic strings of lights, Santa hats, Christmas stockings and a Christmas tree just a little over one foot tall.


The tradition of children leaving treats for Santa Claus varies across different cultures and countries, adding unique touches to this charming custom.

🇺🇸 🇨🇦 United States and Canada

Children in the U.S. and Canada often leave a glass of milk and cookies for Santa and often a carrot or two for Santa’s reindeer.

🇬🇧🇮🇪 UK and Ireland

Children in the UK and Ireland often leave out mince pies and a glass of sherry or a non-alcoholic drink for Father Christmas.

So much to learn and love in this compact volume packed with facts.

What a delight Christmas Fun Facts! is.

As a family, we had a wonderful time doing our best to read the Christmas quotes aloud in the voice of the person who said them and quizzing one another with the questions at the end. My daughter said it was the most fun she had on a test, ever!

The most interesting parts to me were pertaining to the history of Christmas, while my husband was completely engrossed in how holidays are allocated and celebrated on the International Space Station.

Jennings does an excellent job of piecemealing the facts into incremental bites, each one standing out and being just as interesting as the next. Overall, this exhaustively researched and efficiently presented book is the perfect addition to the festivities and cheer of the season. Very highly recommended.

The collection is comprehensive and will be a suitable gift for loved ones during the festive season. It includes an engaging quiz at the end that readers can enjoy with friends or family.

The perfect read for the holiday season.
