WORDS, WORDS, WORDS (Only 4 Days to Christmas!)
Mistletoe - There’s a fun tradition that North Americans follow during Christmas. Mistletoe is often hung from a doorway between two rooms. If someone stands under the mistletoe, it is customary for someone else (usually a member of the opposite sex) to kiss him/her.
Christmas ornaments – are ornaments used to decorate the tree and placed around the house.
Manger – historically, a small wooden trough that animals ate hay from. Jesus was put in a manger after he was born, so some people set up a manger with a plastic baby in it and animals around.
Stockings – literally, ‘socks.’ People hang stockings in front of a fireplace. Small presents are placed in stockings and usually opened on Christmas morning.
Reindeer – Santa rides in a sleigh that is pulled by reindeer. The most famous reindeer is Rudolph, the red-nose reindeer.
