We celebrate it every single year, but there is a lot we don’t know about Christmas. Here are some things you probably didn’t know about Christmas:

  • An estimated 1 of 3 people worldwide celebrate Christmas

  • About 36 million Christmas trees are produced each year on Christmas tree farms

  • The French gave the biggest Christmas present ever in 1886. It was the Statue of Liberty, and they gave it to the United States of America.

  • Santa wore a variety of colorful suits through the years — including red, blue, white, and green — but legend has it that the popular image of his red coat came from a 1930s ad by Coca Cola.

  • Jingle Bells was originally a Thanksgiving song. It was first performed at Thanksgiving church service. Bonus fact: It’s also the first song broadcast from space

  •  Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that an average of 15,000 Americans visit hospital emergency rooms each November and December from holiday-related decorating accidents
