December 2021 Content Ideas and Inspiration
Finally! Our favourite month of the year has come! We can’t wait for the all celebratory events we can spend with our family and friends! Starting with St. Nicholas Day, ending with Christmas and New Year’s Eve! There are, of course, other amazing events in between such as Brownie Day, Christmas Jumper Day or Tick Tock Day! December is just the best time to put on the cosy jumper you were just given as a Christmas present, relax in front of the fireplace and eat and laugh with your loved ones!
One of my favourite quotes about December is:
“One can never have enough socks. Another Christmas has come and “One can never have enough socks. Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.“ – J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone #decembercontentideas Click To Tweet

As always, an interesting combination of serious issues and fun this month.
The Anglo-Saxons called December Aerra Geola (Before Yule).
An almanac prediction states that if snow falls on Christmas Day, Easter will be warm, green and sunny.
The name December comes from the Latin ‘decem’ for ten, as it was the 10th month in the Roman Calendar.
The term Yuletide comes from a Norse tradition of cutting and burning a tree to bring in the Winter Solstice. This was to last through 12 days – later known as the 12 days of Christmas.
Saint Nicholas, who would eventually be called Santa Claus, was originally the patron saint of children, thieves and pawnbrokers!
December 28th is considered by some to be the unluckiest day of the year.
The first artificial Christmas tree was made in Germany, fashioned out of goose feathers that were dyed green!
Spiders and spider webs are considered good luck at Christmas.
Common decorations on a Christmas tree each have their specific meanings. Candles – the light of the world, the Star at the top is a reminder of the first Christmas night and Candy canes are to represent the Nativity Shepherd’s cane, known as a crook.
