It’s looking like this year will be another beautiful California Christmas here in San Diego. We’re especially excited about the Port of San Diego’s Holiday Bowl Parade. It’s the country’s largest balloon parade! With the holiday rapidly approaching we wanted to take the time to wish every San Diegan a merry Christmas and happy holidays.
We also thought it would be fun to share 5 little-known facts about Christmas:
- Christmas trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold – the Guinness world record for the tallest Christmas tree ever cut was a 221-foot Douglas fir that was displayed in 1950 at the Northgate Shopping Center in Seattle, Washington
- Christmas was declared an official holiday in the United States June 26, 1870. It was the state of Oklahoma that first declared Christmas a legal holiday in 1907
- During the Christmas season, nearly 28 sets of LEGO are sold every second
- The look of Santa Claus (we know today) was created at an 1804 meeting of the New York Historical Society but through the years Santa Claus has worn blue, white and green – his traditional red suit did not come until a 1930’s ad by Coca-Cola
“Silent Night” is the most recorded Christmas song in history, over 733 different versions have been copyrighted since 1978 but, “White Christmas” is the best-selling song of all time
The holidays are a time for reflection, we here at North County Plumbing couldn’t be more proud to serve the San Diego Community. We’re looking forward to another year of facilitating honest, dependable and affordable plumbing services!
