The 12 Facts About Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

 

  1. Christmas Date

Christmas is celebrated December 25th in the United States, and other countries. Christmas is celebrated on January 7 in some Eastern Orthodox countries, such as Russia. Considered the most popular Christian observance, Christmas is also celebrated as a secular family holiday. The 12 days of Christmas is the period that in Christian theology marks the span between the birth of Christ and the coming of the Magi, the three wise men. It begins on December 25 (Christmas) and runs through January 6 (the Epiphany, sometimes also called Three Kings' Day). The four weeks preceding Christmas are collectively known as Advent, which begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on December 24.

Invest In Yourself

“The best investment you can make is in yourself.” – Warren Buffet

 

Invest in yourself, and it will pay dividends to you, your family, and where you work. Making improvements in life is a choice. You have to decide to change. You also have to know what you want, and what you are willing to pay (sacrifice) to get it.

ARE YOU IN THE CLOUD?

Cloud computing is internet based computing that provides shared computer processing resources and data to computers and other devices on demand. It enables ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users storage and processing of their data in third party data centers. It allows companies to avoid up front infrastructure costs like purchasing servers, focus on their core businesses, get applications up and running faster with improved manageability and less maintenance and enables information technology (IT) teams to more rapidly adjust resources to fluctuating and unpredictable business demand. So how does it work and how can you benefit from it?

THE HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN

Halloween, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve or All Saints’ Eve, is celebrated on the 31st of October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs and all the faithful departed. It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated in Britain and Ireland from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Others believe that Halloween began as a Christian holiday. Halloween dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin meaning hallowed or holy evening.
