- Santa must thank Great Depression for the Christmas cookies: The practice of leaving cookies started in 1930’s during the time of economic depression. It was during this difficult time that parents encouraged the kids to leave cookies as a charitable deed. This has now become one of the most popular Christmas traditions and santa now enjoys a whole array of flavors now :-).
- Queen Elizabeth I invented gingerbread men: Queen Elizabeth I requested her royal bakers to create gingerbread cookies shaped like visiting dignitaries in order to honor them. Who knew at that point that they will become an instrumental part of Christmas tradition.
