Conservation is in our nature
Strange facts about Christmas For more than 80 years, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has protected, restored and beautified the region. We’ve accomplished our goals only with the help and hard work of our volunteers, the commitment of our partners and the generosity of our supporters. Together, we have conserved more than a quarter million acres of land and countless miles of waterways, planted and maintained gardens, trees and green spaces in cities and towns around the region – and preserved Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater.® To join us, learn more or donate, visit WaterLandLife.org.
Santa Claus brings us gifts from the North Pole. But until 1936, it was the other way around, forcing millions to dangerously trek to the North Pole to pick up their gifts every year. Thanks FDR!
2. On average, over 100 million pounds of
eggnog are consumed each holiday season, 80 million of which are deeply regretted.
3. The North Pole is disappearing. Not really a “strange” fact, but it is horrifying.

Christmas Eve traditions. “If the chicken ain’t fried, it ain’t yuletide,” Bing Crosby once sang.
As portrayed in popular culture, Santa Claus didn’t always have a beard. He was a goatee/ mutton chop man until the 70s.
99.7% of the time, it is not Christmas. Most of the time, “not Christmas” is a safe bet.
Mistletoe is poisonous to cats and dogs, but delicious to humans.
Massachusetts Puritans forbade all Christmas celebrations. Breaking this rule would cost you five shillings, which today, is like … 7 shillings? Nobody knows.
10. Candy canes used to be colored entirely white,
and were actually used as canes since folks used to be much smaller. Times have truly changed.
