DYK there are at least 11 different interpretations of the sentence "Time flies like an arrow."

DYK... Jingle Bells and Deck The Halls aren't Christmas Songs...

They were originally a Thanksgiving Song and New Year's Song respectfully!

Well, "Jingle Bells" could easily have been a general winter song. "Deck the halls" though is clearly about "yuletide" (Christmas) as well as about New Year.

I knew that about "JINGLE BELLS"; but I didn't know that about "DECK THE HALLS".

DYK...

The last new mall in the United States was built around 2006. Some studies say that 25% of all existing malls will close in the next five years.

Though Christmas is kind of over...Martin Luther brought back the concept of the modern Christmas Tree since he was supposedly the first one to add candles on the tree!

Also...The Christmas Tree is a popular Christmas decoration in Germany, France, Italy, The UK, Scandinavia, Poland, The Baltic Countries, Anglo-America, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Israel, and Japan.

January 6 is the celebration of Epiphany which is he manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles as represented by the Magi (Matthew 2:1–12). We would take the tree down after that day.

This is probably quite well known but I'll tell you anyway. The Bible never mentions "3" Wisemen. The actual number is unknown. The Bible only states that the Wisemen came from the East. It became the traditional 3 Wisemen because they brought 3 gifts(gold frankincense and myrrh)

And the Wisemen didn't visit the stable. Actually they came when Jesus was about 2 years old.

Another interesting fact is that the Bible doesn't mention any animals in the stable. But seeing as there was a manger(feeding trough) most likely there were animals in there(Mary and Joseph's donkey for one)

I wouldn't doubt that the stable Joseph and Mary stayed in also had unclean animals like pigs since Gentiles probably had pigs.

And the Wisemen thing...I can see Jesus being a toddler since King Herod caused an act of genocide where his soldiers killed boys 2 and under. But...Jesus and his parents were in Egypt.

Another DYK...Jesus is probably the most talked about person in the field of science since many do archaeology of His Life.

I keep it until January 13th, which is the old Swedish tradition. So just a week left...

Well, I always thought that Bethlehem was a predominantly Jewish town at the time. So I don't believe that there were too many pigs there.

Did you know that slugs and snails only have one foot and because they only have one foot they can't travel in a straight line. Cheers!

DYK . . . In favorable conditions a slug can live for up to 6 years. A slug
can stretch approx. 20 times in length to get through narrow gaps!

Did you know that with the help of Nanoose - Canada was able to play hard ball with the United States military and force the US to sign an off shore fishing agreement? Canada rents part of Nanoose Bay to the US Navy and they test torpedoes there. Back in the 80's or 90's the US was refusing to sign the fishing agreement but they were told that if they didn't sign they would no longer be able to rent part of Nanoose Bay - it's a bay that is perfect for their testing and there are very few Bays in the World as perfect so they signed the agreement. Cheers!
