Christmas remains the most observed and most popular among all the festivals and holidays of the Christian Church year celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, and we begin planning for the next Christmas soon after the Epiphany, the 12th day of Christmas on January 6.
ChristmasDaddy.com wants to help you get ready by sharing ideas, stories, and to provide you with easy access to movies, books, and online shopping to get you in the Christmas mood.
Since the “talkies” came about in the 1930s, Christmas movies were part of Hollywood. Can we forget George Bailey running down the street yelling “Merry Christmas” in It’s a Wonderful Life? Or perhaps Ralphie’s quest for the ultimate gift in A Christmas Story? Share those special television events of the 60s and 70s with your children from the DVD collections containing the Grinch, Charlie Brown, Rudolph, and others.
From Charles Dickens to Chris van Allsburg, books are a great way to share stories and traditions with
your family.Don’t forget that ChristmasDaddy.com donates 10% of earnings from book sales to First Book, a non-profit organization we have partnered with to provide new books to children in need.

Holiday traditions are varied between countries, regions within countries, and of course from home to home. All have a common theme: the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ in a lowly manger in the town of Bethlehem.
Start here to find out more on the roots of the Christmas Celebration in December and the origin of Santa Clause (our Christmas Daddy) as a gift-bringer to children, much the same way kings and shepherds brought gifts to the newborn baby Jesus.
