Notes

Background Information Christmas Symbols and Traditions The Christmas T ree Tree In pre-Christian times in the northern hemisphere bonfires were lit to represent the hidden sun, which was often obscured by clouds during the northern winter season. The pine tree, which was originally covered in candles, and in modern times is decorated with sparkling lights, evolved from the bonfire tradition. The first tree decorated in Britain was supposedly created by Prince Albert. Bells

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

The ringing of bells at Christmas time dates back to pagan midwinter celebrations, when evil spirits were driven away by the ringing of bells and other noise like singing and shouting. Today church bells ring throughout the world on Christmas Eve to welcome in the spirit of Christmas rather than to drive the evil spirits away. Candles The use of candles during Christmas time also originated in pagan mid-winter ceremonies where light was thought to drive away the forces of cold and darkness. In the Christian community, the lighting of candles symbolises Jesus as the light of the world. Tinsel

One explanation of tinsel’s origin is that spider webs spun during the night glistened like tinsel in the early morning dew. Children may observe this on trees in the school yard, although the effect is dependent on the climate. Mistletoe and Holly These hardy plants were used to decorate homes in the northern hemisphere winters when greenery was scarce. Mistletoe was sacred to ancient Druids as a symbol of eternal life but the Romans valued it as a symbol of peace. The custom of kissing under the mistletoe was also a Roman custom. Bon Bons or Crackers

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y•

These started as a wrapped gift of sugared almonds, given as a sign of peace. An Englishman later added messages, riddles and trinkets, and saltpetre strips to create the excitement of an explosion. Candy Cane

. te

m . u

w ww

Candy cane was made in the U.S.A. by a candy maker who used white to symbolise the Virgin Birth and the shape of the letter 'J' to represent Jesus' name. Christmas Cards The practice of sending Christmas cards to friends was started by Sir Henry Cole in England in 1843. The first commercial card was designed by J.C. Horsley and 1000 copies were sold in London. The idea of Christmas cards have spread all over the world with the themes of the cards being as varied as are Christmas customs around the world. Mince Pies

Mince pies have been prepared as Christmas treats for as nearly as long as Christmas has existed. The pies represent the treasures that the Three Wise Men brought to Jesus in the stable. They are a symbol of wealth and greatness. Christmas Cake The Christmas cake is a relatively new Christmas tradition. Prince Albert (1819-1861) wanted a special treat for his children for Christmas dinner and he chose a plum cake which was decorated with white icing and snowmen, very much like our present day Christmas cake. Poinsettias Poinsettias are popular because of their red leaves. A Mexican legend tells the story of a young girl who had no gift to take to the crib on Christmas Eve. In the churchyard she found an angel carved of stone. The carving was overgrown with weeds and as the girl bent to clear them away she heard a voice that told her to take the weeds to Jesus. As she walked towards the crib, the tops of the weeds turned bright red like fire. Ever since, people have grown poinsettias for Christmas. Christmas Stockings The tradition of hanging Christmas stockings began with St Nicholas, who was a Bishop of Myra in Asia Minor in the 4th Century. St Nicholas tossed three sacks of gold down the chimney of a man who was so poor that he could not keep his three unmarried daughters. One of the bags fell into a stocking that was hanging by the fireplace.

A quick and easy way to attach the cotton wool is with small pieces of velcro. This means that the Santa Advent Calendar can be used again. v Another simple Advent calendar can be made by gluing 24 pegs to a piece of firm cardboard. Put a joke, puzzle or a message into 24 small envelopes. Peg each envelope onto the cardboard. The pegs, backboard and envelopes can be decorated or simply sprayed with gold spray paint.

Use vegetables or fruit to make a stamp to print a repeated pattern on the paper. For instance, you could use a potato to make a Christmas tree shape. Use a straw to blow some paint over the surface of the paper to make an interesting design. Use a sponge to randomly print over the paper. Use a toothbrush and a piece of wire to splatter paint over the paper. If you place Christmas stencils on the paper first, the shapes will appear in the background colour. Use cookie cutters or stencils of Christmas shapes to paint shapes on the paper. Decorate with glitter or small pieces of tinsel. If you form words such as Merry Christmas with glue, then shake glitter over the glue, Merry Christmas comes out in glitter. Use a piece of string dipped in paint and drag it along the paper.

Other suggestions Instead of gingerbread men, a variety of Christmas shapes can be used. A cardboard stencil of the shapes can be used to carefully cut around. Shapes that are suitable are snowman, bells, Christmas tree, angels, stockings, Santa Claus, etc. Stencils for these can be found at the back of this book.

To save time, the website address can be bookmarked or added to favourites (depending on your browser) before the lesson begins. This will make it easier for the children to locate the website. All the activities are suitable for young children and some are even easy enough for pre-primary students. They can do the online activity but perhaps it would not be necessary for them to use the activity sheet to record the lesson. Other more appropriate methods of recording the lesson, such as oral reporting or simple illustrations, could be used.

The Lonely Little Christmas Tree Hi! My name is Chrissy and I am a Christmas tree. I live on a Christmas tree farm in England, just out of a small town. My owner, Jack, is a wonderful kind man who has looked after me and nurtured me since he put me in the ground as a seed three years ago. Every day Jack comes and waters me and talks to me. "Little tree, little tree," he says sadly. "I wish you would grow. You are so small and skinny. If you don't grow you will be the only tree left in my Christmas nursery. You will be very lonely."

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

It was getting close to Christmas. One by one the trees around me were sold to families who came to the farm. The children who visited the tree farm were excited and ran around the trees shouting happily,

Teac he r

"Pick this one, Mum. No, pick this one. Look how tall and strong it looks. It will look wonderful with all our beautiful decorations on it." None of the children ran around me. I became very sad.

On Christmas Eve, the very night before Christmas, every last one of the Christmas trees in Jack's farm were sold - except me. Jack came out into the nursery and looked at me.

"I'm sorry, little tree. You are not big enough or strong enough to be a Christmas tree. I've come to say goodbye. I am too old to look after the Christmas tree farm any longer. I am going away to live with my son and his family in town. They are coming to pick me up soon." I had never felt sadder in my life. My branches and my leaves drooped as Jack sat on the garden bench to wait for his son.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons A car came up the hill. In it was Jack's son, his wife and their two children. The car stopped •Mike, f oJack's rr e vi ewranp pgrandfather oses o nl y • and Susan and grandchildren, upu tor their and hugged him.

m . u

"Granddad, you look so sad, " said Susan. "You should be happy. It's Christmas and we are really looking forward to you living with us."

w ww

"It's Chrissy, my favourite Christmas tree," replied Jack. "Nobody wanted him and now he will be all alone." The family helped Jack into the car and slowly the car drove away into town. I was all alone.

It was a very cold and lonely winter. Not even birds visited as my branches became covered in snow and ice. Spring came and the winter snow melted. I began to feel stronger and happier as flowers sprung up around me and birds built their nests in my branches. Still I was lonely as I remembered how kind Jack had been to me. All through summer, I grew and became stronger and thicker. Then the cooler weather of autumn approached and I became sadder as Christmas got nearer. The memories of last Christmas when nobody wanted me made me very unhappy. On Christmas Eve I huddled in the winter cold, my branches drooping towards the ground.

Christmas Language Suddenly, I heard a car coming up the drive. It's was Jack's son's car! Out stepped Jack. He walked up to me with a look of delight in his face. "You look wonderful, Chrissy. We are going to take you home to be our Christmas tree." Susan and Mike got out of the car and helped Jack dig me out of the ground and carry me to the boot. They tied me in securely and off we went towards town. When we arrived at Jack's son's house they carefully lifted me out of the boot. A large hole had been dug in the garden,

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

"Look Chrissy," said Jack. "You are such a special Christmas tree that we are going to plant you in the garden so that you can be with us year after year."

"You are the best looking tree in the street," said Jack.

My branches lifted towards the sky with pride as Susan and Mike draped some colourful Christmas lights around my branches.

I looked at my reflection in the window of the house. Do you know what? HE WAS RIGHT.
