Christmas, a whole History
Christmas Eve is a known date, recognised and appreciated by all. The origins of the word Christmas are diverse and often controversial around the world, however, they remain Latin. Indeed, Christmas comes from "Dies Natalis Domini" meaning "Day of birth of the God". Over the centuries, this origin was abbreviated to "natalis" to become everyone’s shared word: Christmas.
As for the origin of the celebration, it is Roman. The first recorded mention of this Christian holiday dates from 336 A.D. in Rome. Celebrated internationally on the night of December 24th, Christmas Eve has been secularised over time. Today, it is no longer necessarily celebrated as a religious holiday but represents a night of sharing in family around a good meal and the exchange of gifts.
A festive and warm interior
To accompany the festive side that has become Christmas and welcome your family and friends in a warm interior, the trendy key materials are velvet and wood. The softness of the velvet will bring the cozy effect expected to your Christmas night, as well as to the rest of the year. Plain or patterned, bright or dark, the velvet survived throughout the centuries and returns with great fanfare for the end of the year.
