How interesting. Thank you. I would have thought that Scotland and England
would have honored Christmas as a holiday much longer ago than 1950.
I hope to find some traditions that may have had roots in Scotland and
Ireland and carried over to the US. A few years ago I read of an area of
Tennessee that carries on a tradition of greeting visitors with "Christmas
preseent". For years I had heard my older brothers and sisters use that
greeting; but when asked they, didn't know where it came from or why. On
seeing that article it gave me a clue; my maternal grandmother's parents
were from Tennessee.
