Making Insurance

December 24 2010

It’s Friday! Tomorrow is Christmas and we here at Lords Insurance wish everybody a Merry Christmas! Yes, technically it’s Christmas Eve but I won’t be here to create an entry on Christmas! So what IS Christmas Eve all about anyway?

Here is the history behind it according to Wikipedia:

Christmas Eve is the day before Christmas Day, a widely celebrated holiday commemorating the Nativity of Jesus. It is a culturally significant celebration for most of the Western world and is widely observed as a full or partial holiday in anticipation of Christmas.In Western culture, Christmas Eve is mostly celebrated on December 24. However, the Coptic, Serbian, Russian, Macedonian, and Georgian Orthodox Churches, as well as the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, use the Julian calendar, which is currently 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar, so Christmas Eve for the adherents of those Churches coincides with January 6 of the following year in the Gregorian calendar.

Once again, Merry Christmas everybody! See you next week!
